An intramuscular lipoma (IML) usually arises within the large muscles of extremities. Intraoral examples of this tumor are uncommon. On histopathology, these are characteristically recognized from the diffuse infiltration of muscle fascicles by sweeps of adipocytic proliferation. Classic cytomorphology of the neoplasm has also been described, but are mostly encountered from the extremities. This latest report here explores the utility of fine-needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of an IML from one of its unusual locales at the tongue.
