Lymphangioma is a benign hamartomatous neoplasm of the lymphatic vessels. Head-and-neck lymphangiomas are rare but when it affects, tongue is the most common site. These tumors usually manifest within the 1st year of life. When it affects the tongue, there may be either a localized or diffused growth that can enlarge to cause macroglossia.
