Lymphangioma circumscriptum is a congenital lymphatic malformation of superficial lymphatics. It may present at any age but is usually noted at birth or appears during childhood. The usual sites of presentation are head and neck; oral cavity is rarely involved. Very few cases of lymphangioma circumscriptum of the tongue are reported. The diagnosis is confirmed by histopathology. The usual treatment for such cases includes local excision or sclerotherapy. We present a case of symptomatic lymphangioma circumscriptum of the tongue in a 15-year-old boy who was treated by debulking of lesion, followed by intralesional injections of bleomycin.
