In the field of the benign neoplastic lesions of the tongue, some vascular malformations as lymphangiomas and hemangiomas show great relevance. Among these ones, a combined variety (hemolymphangioma), more frequent in childhood, seems to be quite rare in the adult age. Our case appeared only at 17 years of age, as a small, neglected and misdiagnosed tumefaction of the dorsal face of the tongue, rapidly increased and give rise to some defect of pronunciation (lisp). Surgical complete excision was made with a good muscular reconstruction and without any motorial and sensorial deficiency.
