Liposarcomas are common mesenchymal malignant tumors arising from adipose tissue. Although liposarcomas are the most frequent type of soft tissue sarcomas, accounting for approximately 20% of all soft tissue sarcomas, they are rare in the head and neck, particularly in the oral cavity. Oral liposarcomas have been reported to occur mainly on the buccal mucosa, with other sites including the floor of the mouth, tongue, palate, and mandible. This report describes a 76-year-old male patient with an atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma of the tongue that underwent surgical excision. This report also reviews published data on these rare tumors.
