Hemangiomas are benign tumors of vascular origin that primarily develops during infancy and childhood. It is most commonly seen in the head and neck region and rarely in the oral cavity. Hemangiomas in the oral cavity are always of clinical importance and require early diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Tongue hemangiomas show a great risk for patients since the tongue being an inquisitor mobile organ is more susceptible to trauma and subsequent complications. Here we have presented a case of hemangioma in a 5-year-old female patient occurring on posterior dorsal surface of tongue.
Key words: Hemangioma, surgery, tongue.
