atypical lipomatous tumors
Herein, we report a case of atypical spindle cell lipomatous tumor (ASCLT) on both sides of the tongue in a 74-year-old male patient. The patient was referred to our department for treatment of the masses in the tongue. Several elastic soft indolent masses were detected during the first examination. The masses were well defined, and their consistency was similar to that of adipose tissues. No signs of induration were observed in the surrounding tissues. The patient was not aware of the masses, which were only detected during his visit at the dental clinic that referred him to our institution. Thus, the onset of the masses remains unknown. ASCLT was identified via histopathological examination. Then, tumor excision was performed under general anesthesia. Thirteen months after surgery, the condition of the patient was good, and signs of local recurrence or postoperative metastasis were not observed.
