Abstract

We present a 76-year-old patient with a congenitally mixed capillary/cavernous hemangioma of the tongue, which rapidly enlarged after an unrelated surgical procedure under spinal anesthesia. The enlargement resulted in a significant functional and cosmetic deformity that was corrected by surgical excision. A brief discussion of hemangiomas and their treatment is included.
