Intramuscular lipomas are uncommon benign mesenchymal tumors which infiltrate skeletal muscle. It is very rarely encountered in head and neck region and often located in limbs. A consistent feature is infiltration with dissociation of the surrounding muscle fibers which makes it difficult to distinguish from well-differentiated liposarcomas. Its recurrence is very high. Imaging such as CT, MRI and ultrasonography gives valuable diagnostic information which seldom requires histopathology for diagnosing these lesions. Here, we report a case of an intramuscular lipoma of the masseter muscle in a 50-year-old male patient who presented with a growing mass in the left cheek. The radiographic imaging features are also discussed.
