Author(s): Dr. Bed Prakash Gond
Background: Solitary, nodular lesions of the oral mucosa present a clinical dilemma with their similar presentation to the physician. The lesions that appear on the ventral surface of the tongue, a soft muscular organ are distinct and even rarer with varied manifestations. It may occur in different locations in the oral mucosa due to trauma or obstruction of minor salivary gland ducts with the lower lip as the predominant site, often overlooked during screening procedures because of their asymptomatic nature.
Case Summary: Here, we report an interesting case of solitary nodular lesion on the anterior ventral surface of the tongue in 4 year old female child based on the clinical diagnosis. Moreover, these cystic nodular lesions should be considered as one of the differential diagnosis while evaluating a growth involving the ventral surface of the tongue in young female children.
