An idiopathic case of macroglossia.
J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg. 2009 Feb; 62(2):e41-3.JP

Abstract

SUMMARY

A case of successful reduction glossectomy for idiopathic macroglossia is presented. Macroglossia varies in its degree of severity. With pronounced macroglossia, respiratory and feeding difficulties may ensue. Persistent macroglossia leads to speech problems and anterior open bite. The cause of macroglossia must be clearly defined, and true macroglossia separated from pseudomacroglossia. There are many congenital and acquired causes of true macroglossia. By far, the most common cause of macroglossia is muscular hypertrophy. No similar case of idiopathic macroglossia is encountered in the literature. Corrective reduction glossectomy for this reason is scarcely described in the literature.
