22/27. Macroglossal lymphangioendotheliomatosis. Report of a case in a pregnant woman.

    An unusual case of adult-onset lymphangioendotheliomatous macroglossia occurred in a 37-year-old woman. In addition to a dramatic acceleration of the macroglossia during her third pregnancy, the patient exacerbated the macroglossia by Valsalva's maneuvers and voluntary tongue protrusion. bed rest and head elevation could improve the macroglossia within 24 hours. Preservation of an adequate airway during a life-threatening state of proliferation and expansion of the lymphangiomatous lesions required surgical intervention. The patient's lesion differed clinically and pathologically from usual glossal lymphangioma, hemangioma, pregnancy gingival tumor, and hemangiomatosis. Pathologically, multifocal, multicentric areas of cavernous hemangiomatouslike, cavernous lymphangiomatouslike, and angioendotheliomatous areas were present within the deep musculature of the tongue, minor salivary tissue, and soft tissue of the floor of the mouth.

23/27. lymphangioma in children.

    The topic of lymphangioma is reviewed. Included in the text are the embryology, classification, clinical presentation, and treatment. Eight case reports are included. One case involved the skin, two presented with a submandibular mass, one had both a facial lymphangioma and a cystic hygroma of the floor of the mouth, and there are two cases of involvement of the tongue, and two cases of classical cystic hygroma of the neck. The rate of involution is probably higher than previously thought. Indications for surgery are suggested. This diagnosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis of a mass presenting in the head and neck of a child.

24/27. lymphangioma treatment with Nd-YAG laser.

    In the oral cavity, lymphangioma is a rare, non-odontogenic, benign neoplasm which originates from lymph vessels. This lesion is common in the first decade of life and mostly occurs on the dorsal surface and lateral border of the tongue and rarely arises on the palate, gingiva, buccal mucosa and lips. Treatment of the lesion is surgical excision, however in recent years neodymium Yitrium aluminum Garnet (Nd-YAG) laser surgery has become favorable due to its many advantages. This case report presents the treatment of a buccal lymphangioma in a 10-year-old girl by Nd-YAG laser.

25/27. lymphangioma of the tongue.

    Lymphangiomas are uncommon congenital tumors of the lymphatic system which usually occur in the head and neck; involvement of the tongue is rare. We report the case of a six-year-old Asian girl with a lymphangioma of the tongue. The differential diagnosis and treatment of tongue lymphangioma are also reviewed. It is important for emergency physicians to recognize unusual lesions such as lymphangioma, because early recognition and surgical excision of these tumors are essential for an optimal outcome.

26/27. Acute enlargement of the tongue.

    Acute enlargement of the tongue can present as an emergency. The problems of management in the acute situation and the diagnosis of the underlying condition are discussed and illustrated with reference to four unusual cases. There is a case for a simple classification and such a classification is presented.

27/27. prenatal diagnosis and perinatal management of a lingual lymphangioma.

    We describe the prenatal ultrasonographic features that led to the diagnosis of a lingual lymphangioma. The risk of upper airway obstruction, which is associated with this rare abnormality, prompted us to plan careful perinatal management. We believe that, in cases of suspected lymphangioma of the tongue or other oropharyngeal tumors, elective delivery should be carried out in a tertiary referral center in which emergency ventilation and tracheostomy are possible.
