Synopsis: 
Odontogenic tumours are derived from epithelial and mesenchymal elements that are part of the tooth-forming apparatus. A retrospective study of patients with a histopathologic diagnosis of orofacial tumours was conducted. Odontogenic tumours constituted 179 (15.3%) cases out of a total of 1170 orofacial tumours.

ABSTRACT

Background: Tumours of odontogenic origin (OTs) resulting from epithelial and mesenchymal elements that are part of the tooth-forming apparatus must be considered as a differential diagnosis when analysing jaw lesions. They may be cystic, myxomatous or sometimes have a mixture of cystic and solid areas.

Synopsis: 
Intraoral lipoma is a very rare, benign, mesenchymal tumour which represents only 1–4% of all head and neck lipomas. Herein, we present eight cases of intraoral lipomas, emphasizing the rarity of this lesion in the oral cavity.

ABSTRACT

Objective: About 20% of lipomas are seen in the head and neck region among which oral lipomas constitute only 1-4%.Our aim was to investigate oral lipomas from two institutes in Turkey.
