Intestinal duplication in the tongue: embryological and radiological point of view
- 25 Downloads
Intestinal duplication in the tongue is a rare entity. Occurrence in the anterior part of the tongue is exceptional. We report an intestinal duplication in the tongue causing eating difficulties and discuss the accuracy of embryologic and histopathology knowledge as radiology. A transoral complete resection of the lesion was performed, without postoperative complications. There was no recurrence with a follow-up of 15 years.
