ABSTRACT
Congenital lingual cystic masses are challenging entities that can be detected prenatally or are discovered in various forms after birth. Foregut duplication cyst of tongue is an extremely rare condition. Here we present the eleventh case in literature on foregut duplication cyst in tongue lined with gastric mucosa. Complete excision was curative with no recurrence on followup.

Figure 1: Tongue mass

Mentions: This neonate presented with mass in tongue on tenth day of life [Figure 1], which was diagnosed as tongue lymphangioma in anomaly scan at the 8th month of gestation. Fullterm child with 3kg birth weight was not able to take breast feed and was on spoon feeding. On examination, his right side of the tongue and floor of mouth was diffusely enlarged, and a bulge was noted at the right submandibular region. On palpation, cystic, nonpulsatile mass was felt in the body of the tongue. Ultrasound revealed a 4 × 4 × 2.2 cm mixed cystic mass, probably lymphangioma. Computed tomography (CT) scan detected a 3.6 × 3.4 × 4.2 cm solid mass with cystic areas confined to the tongue with involvement of floor of mouth. There was diagnostic dilemma between lymphangioma and cystic variety of teratoma. Malignancy workup was negative. Marspulisation and wedge biopsy was taken as complete excision was not possible. Histopathology was suggestive of mucous retention cyst and ruled out malignant lesion.
