Lipomas are the most common mesenchymal neoplasms in the body. Most common locations being head, neck and extremities. Other very rare locations are tongue, intestine, buccogingival junction, parotid, lips and uterus. We have presented three rare sites of lipoma of which first is a case of 75 year old male who presented with problems of mastication which on examination showed soft swelling on the left lateral tongue and later the diagnosis of lipoma was confirmed. Next is a case of intestinal lipoma where the patient presented with intestinal obstruction. MRI showed jejuno-ileal intussusception. Here, Submucosal lipoma was confirmed on histopathology. The last case is of a 61 year old female who presented with post menopausal bleeding, MRI was suggestive of fibroid uterus with fatty signal, which was confirmed as an intramural lipoma on histopathology.
