Abstract

The most frequent benign mesenchymal tumours are lipomas, which can develop anywhere that normally has fat. Only 13% of all lipomas are detected in the head and neck region, and they are most frequently seen in the subcutaneous area of the posterior part of the neck. The sternocleidomastoid muscle, the superficial and deep lobes of the parotid gland, the oral cavity, intracranial lipomas, and other locations have also been documented in conjunction with them.
