Abstract

A case of a rare leiomyomatous hamartoma arising in the posterior tongue of a sixteen-month-old male is reported. There has been no recurrence following simple excision and presenting symptoms of choking on swallowing have resolved. Most other leiomyomatous hamartomas in the upper aerodigestive tract have been reported in Japanese patients and have involved the maxillary gingiva and hard palate.
