Angiolipoma, a subtype of lipoma is a benign tumour in which adipose tissue and vascular component are intermingled. The tumour occurs commonly in the trunk and extremities and very rarely seen in maxillofacial region. Here we report a case of Non-Infiltrating Angiolipoma (NIAL) in floor of mouth which is the second case to be reported in literature to the best of our knowledge. We have reviewed all NIAL cases involving the oral cavity from 2008 to 2016 and found 12 cases of NIAL and assessment was made according to age, sex, site and size of lesion for better understanding of the lesion and its nature.
