A white male infant presented with a tongue mass that had been observed since birth without any change in size. The child had normal development and weight gain. On examination, the tongue mass, measuring approximately 0.5 × 0.5 cm, was located the mid-dorsum of the tongue 2 cm anterior to sulcus terminalis linguae. The pedunculated mass had a smooth surface the same color as adjacent mucosa. The mass was painless and firm on palpation. The mass was completely excised below the peduncle and submitted for histopathologic examination.
