• Although rare, hemangiomas and lymphangiomas of the oral cavity are difficult management problems. Surgical resection is still commonly thought of by many when considering treatment. Several articles in 1986 reported good results using the neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser for these lesions. Using this laser, we have treated six patients with hemangiomas or lymphangiomas of the oral cavity over the past 4 years. Although most patients have required several treatments, the response has been excellent overall. This report confirms the results of previous studies.
