Hemangiomas are the most common benign vascular tumours, often reported in very young. Though the head and neck regions have high predilection, intra-oral hemangiomas (IH) are very rare. In spite of numerous treatment options, the IH are ideal candidates for surgical exoneration. The reasons for this are manifold. This manuscript intends to present a case of IH arising in the tongue along with subsequent macroglossia. The treatment and surgical strategy based on cardinal principles of macroglossia corrections are described. A note on the challenges associated with treatment is presented.
