Early tongue resection for Beckwith-Wiedemann macroglossia.
Ann Plast Surg. 1985 Feb; 14(2):142-4.AP

Abstract

Dentists are aware of the extraordinary influence an active thrusting tongue can have on dental development. In the presence of the profound muscle hypertrophy characteristic of macroglossia in the Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, a compelling need exists for surgical reduction of the tongue as early in life as possible. This report describes our clinical experience with 3 children, 1 referred late and the other 2 treated within the first year of life.
