• Lingual cartilaginous choristomas are rare tumors. They are usually seen in adults as an asymptomatic mass on the lateral surface of the tongue. The histology is benign, with mature adipocytes or myxoid tissue and islands of cartilage within a well-defined capsule. Simple excision is curative. Because of the rarity of this lesion, we remind readers of its existence and present a review of the literature.
