Lymphangioma of Tongue: A Case Report
Dr. Garima Anant, Dr. Ankita Suri
Abstract: Lymphangioma is a benign tumour involving the lymphatic channels and is mostly confined in the head and neck region in about majority of cases. Although lymphangiomas commonly occur in the head and neck region, intraoral lymphangiomas are rare. Lymphangioma of the tongue may cause gross structural deformity of the face and interfere with speech and swallowing. Anaesthetic concerns include difficulty in mask ventilation, intubation, bleeding, extrinsic and intrinsic pressure on the airway causing distortion and enlarged upper respiratory structures like tongue, lips and epiglottis. We present a case of a 2 year old male child with the lymphangioma of tongue.
