Angiolipoma usually develops in the trunk and extremities and rarely arises in the head and neck region, especially in the oral cavity. A case of angiolipoma of the cheek is reported. A 12-year-old girl was referred to our hospital because of swelling of the left cheek. Clinical examination revealed a rather ill-defined soft mass in the left cheek. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and MR angiography (MRA) suggested the mass to be a hemangioma. The mass was extirpated transorally with the patient under general anesthesia. Microscopically, the mass consisted of mature fat tissue intermixed with abundant vascular elements. A pathologic diagnosis of angiolipoma was made.
