 en Case Report - Chondroma of the tongue
Deepak Kumar Sinha, Jeevan Lal Sahni, Asha Agarawal


The occurrence of chondroma in the soft tissue of the oral cavity is uncommon. This anomaly occurs mainly on the lateral side or dorsum of the tongue. Here we report a case of a well-defined cartilaginous tumour of the tongue in a 10-year-old boy, diagnosed histologically as a chondroma. The swelling was present on the dorsal aspect of the right half of the tongue at the junction of its posterior 1/3 and anterior 2/3. The swelling was removed successfully in toto and the patient made an uneventful recovery.
