An interesting lesion is presented, wherein a tiny traumatic perforation of the buccal mucosa and buccinator muscle forced a large portion of the buccal fat pad to extrude into the oral cavity. Such a situation can alarm any clinician & reinforces the importance of careful history taking and thorough examination, before treating patients.
