    CASE REPORT

Hemolymphangioma of the toungue: case report

Fimmanò A., Coppola Bottazezei E., Cirillo C.

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.
