[An unusual differential diagnosis of cancer of the base of the tongue: malacoplakia].

Abstract

A rare case is presented of a 68-year-old patient, suffering from malacoplakia of the base of the tongue. Up to now, only seven patients with manifestations of this chronic inflammatory disease in head and neck have been reported. Histologic features and therapeutic approaches are discussed, followed by a short review of the literature.
