Abstract
Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors or tumor-like malformations of blood vessels or blood filled cavernous spaces. Hemangiomas of the oral cavity represents 14% of all hemangiomas. Most heman-giomas are detected by one year of age and most commonly occurred in the lips, tongue, buccal mucosa and palate. But hemangiomas are sometimes reported in adults. We report one case of extensive hemangioma of the tongue in adult. Our case is a 48-year-old male who presented with a hemangioma occupying entirely two-third of the tongue. Treating those lesions pose a challenge to the surgeon. This paper discusses one case of ex-tensive tongue hemangiomas treated with alcoholic sclerotherapy with satisfactory results supporting this par-ticular approach in the management of these lesion.
Key Words: Hemangioma, Tongue, Alcoholic sclerotherapy
