Case 1: What is that in your mouth?
A nine-year-old girl presented with a four-day history of a
growing mass under the right side of her tongue. The mass
had been steadily increasing in size, but was not affecting
her ability to swallow, speak, chew or breathe. The lesion
was not tender or painful. It was light blue in colour. The
patient had previously been well and had not experienced
any recent nausea, vomiting, fever or weight loss. She had
no history of oral trauma.
