My Words are Tied, So is My Tongue - A Case Study of Ankyloglossia

Dr. Rani Nallathamby [3]

This poses problems in daily life of the affected person in the form of speech difficulties, deglutition issues etc. This article reports a 9 year school going boy presenting to the opd with difficulty in speech. The case was successfully treated and followed up.
