Maxillofacial vascular anomalies pose a significant challenge in diagnosis and treatment, particularly concerning hemangiomas, which are prevalent in the head and neck region, with the lips, tongue, buccal mucosa, and palate most commonly involved (more than 50% of lesions). While typically identified in infancy, adult-onset and intramuscular hemangiomas are even more rare occurrences, necessitating careful management to prevent functional or aesthetic complications. We present a case series of seven patients with deep or cavernous hemangiomas on the tongue, successfully treated with 1% sodium tetradecyl sulphate. This non-surgical approach offers a promising alternative to invasive procedures, potentially reducing the need for extensive surgical interventions and ensuring favorable outcomes for patients.
Vascular anomalies are one of the most difficult diagnostic and therapeutic enigma in the maxillofacial region. Hemangiomas are developmental vascular abnormalities and more than 50% of these lesions occur in the head and neck region, with the lips, tongue, buccal mucosa, and palate most commonly involved. Most vascular anomalies are noticed at birth or occur during infancy, and generally involve skin or subcutaneous soft tissues. Adult onset hemangiomas are rare, and intramuscular location is extremely rare. Despite its benign origin and behaviour, it is always of clinical importance to the dental professionals and requires appropriate management as it may lead to an early or continuous loss of function or lifetime esthetic impairment.
Here we present a case series of 7 patients presenting with deep or cavernous hemangioma on tongue treated with 1% sodium tetradecyl sulphate with successful remission of the lesion. Usually such patients require surgical removal of the lesion. But in consideration to the massive surgical procedure, this therapeutic approach may reduce the chances of the surgical requirement.
