Lymphangiomas of the tongue are relatively uncommon, and traditional treatment modalities carry a high failure rate. We present here a case report of effective treatment of lymphangioma circumscriptum of the oral tongue using radiofrequency coblation, while including a review of the current literature.

Treatment of lymphangioma with CO2 laser in the mandibular alveolar mucosa.
CO2 laser therapy can be used as a primary alternative method in the treatment of lymphangiomas and recurrence may be less than conventional excision with scalpel, however, long-term clinical follow-up is neccessary for the recurrence of the lesion. Expand
Lymphangioma. An otolaryngologic perspective.
Although lymphangiomas are slow growing, early removal was preferable: recurrences increased as the time interval between tumor identification and surgical intervention lengthened and size fluctuation with a history of infection, another unfavorable prognostic factor, also increased recurrence rate.
