Benign neoplasm of the tonsillar region is a rare finding. The origin of these neoplasms can be either epithelial or mesenchymal in origin. Fibroma originates from the mesenchymal tissue. Fibroma in the tonsillar region is a very rare finding. True fibroma of tonsil is an uncommon benign neoplasm. Even in the reports of true fibroma of oral cavity, tonsillar fibroma is not often included due to its low incidence. As a result only a few case reports of such finding have been published. We are reporting a case of true fibroma of tonsil for its rarity.
