NOVILLO-LOPEZ, Clara Isabel; MAQUEDA-ZAMORA, Gloria; SIERRA-SANTOS, Lucía  and  BERROCAL-ESPINOSA, Paula. Myofibroblastic tongue tumour. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2022, vol.15, n.1, pp.63-66.  Epub Apr 04, 2022. ISSN 2386-8201.

An inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour is a rare submucosal stromal tumour whose most common presentation is in the lung. This is a heterogeneous tumour, comprised of spindle cells, inflammatory cells and myofibroblasts, which is generally benign. However, it can cause local invasion, recurrence and malignant transformation.

We report a young patient with an invasive and infiltrating tumour on the tongue that turned out to be a myofibroblastic tumour but caused major concern due to its rapid growth.

Keywords : tongue diseases; tongue neoplasms; tongue.
