PMID:  11862206     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Spindle cell lipoma of the oral cavity is extremely rare. We report a case occurring on the alveolar mucosa, an oral site that has not been previously reported. A short review of the literature is also presented. The importance of distinguishing this benign lesion from a sarcoma is highlighted. The lesion was excised, and no recurrence has been reported after 2 years.
