Lipoblastoma, a rare benign tumor originating from white fetal adipose tissue, occurs primarily in infancy and early childhood. Lipoblastoma commonly occurs in the trunk and upper and lower extremities and is less common in the head and neck, mediastinum, and retroperitoneum. No case of lipoblastoma of the tongue has been reported to date. Here, we report a case of lipoblastoma presenting as an exophytic mass in the tongue of a 3-year-old boy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of lipoblastoma of the tongue reported in the literature.
