Abstract

Lipoblastomas are rare benign tumors originating from embryonic fat cells that continue to proliferate in the postnatal period. Most tumors occur around age three and are found predominantly in the extremities and trunk. Less than fifteen cases have been reported in the head and neck region. We present a case of lipoblastoma arising in the soft palate, a site that has not been previously reported. By doing so, we hope to promote awareness of this pathology and emphasize the importance of using histological and cytogenetic analysis to obtain the correct diagnosis.
