Lymphangiomas are benign, hemartomatous tumors of lymphatic vessels. They most likely represent developmental malformations that apse from sequestrations of lymphatic tissues that do not communicate normally with rest of lymphatic system. Our present knowledge of lymphangioma indicates that it has a predilection for the head and neck, which accounts for 50 to 75% of all cases. About half of all lesions are noticed at birth and around 90% develop by 2 years of age. Lymphangioma is a rare medical condition and not many cases are reported in scientific literature. A case of lymphangioma of tongue in a 17-year-old male is reported.
