Savran B, Kucur C, Kocak C, Ozbay I, Metineren MH, Karakus YT - Case Rep Otolaryngol (2015)

Bottom Line: During surgery, a 3-cm diameter opaque thick-walled cyst was found to be very closely adherent to the base of tongue, which was excised in its entirety.On histological examination, a cystic lesion lined with intestinal mucosa and goblet cells was found.We present the rare case of a duplication cyst of the posterior tongue, with a literature review.

ABSTRACT
The lingual localization of an enteric duplication is extremely rare but may present with respiratory and feeding problems that require emergency intervention. A 7-month-old boy was brought to our clinic with feeding difficulties and tongue swelling. Physical examination showed a cystic lesion located near the left side of the tongue base that caused tongue protrusion to the contralateral side. During surgery, a 3-cm diameter opaque thick-walled cyst was found to be very closely adherent to the base of tongue, which was excised in its entirety. Following surgery, the patient fed during the early postoperative period and no complications were observed other than hypersalivation. On histological examination, a cystic lesion lined with intestinal mucosa and goblet cells was found. We present the rare case of a duplication cyst of the posterior tongue, with a literature review.

Mentions: A 7-month-old boy was brought to our clinic with feeding difficulties and swelling of the tongue. On physical examination; we noticed a cystic lesion located near the left side of the tongue base which was causing protrusion of the tongue to the contralateral side. The child did not have any other anomalies on physical examination and his medical history was otherwise unremarkable. The patient was admitted for surgery, during which a 3-cm diameter opaque thick-walled cyst was identified to be very closely adherent to the base of the tongue. The total excision of the cyst via bipolar diathermy was performed under general anesthesia (Figures 1 and 2). We made preparation for emergent tracheostomy before the surgery in case orotracheal intubation is not possible; however no respiratory complications occurred during intubation or extubation.
