Huge lymphangioma of the tongue: a case report.Asian J Surg. 2003 Oct; 26(4):228-30.AJ
Lymphangioma of the tongue is relatively rare and may cause facial structural deformity. Using a combination of a V-shaped and central resection, we successfully treated a 6-year-old girl who had massive lymphangioma of the tongue. Postoperatively, her tongue was located completely within her mouth with good cosmetic results. Sensory and motor nerves to the tongue appeared to be intact. Her speech was also improved.
