A 42-years-old man presented with a lobulated asymmetric enlargement of the tongue and fullness in the submental and upper neck region in the midline. The patient gave a history of having this problem since childhood with progressive slow enlargement. He had slowly developed difficulty in speech, tongue movement and deglutition. On local examination, there was a lobulated lump involving the tongue and oral cavity. There was no ulcer in the buccal mucosa or oral cavity. There were no palpable neck nodes. Clinical examination of other major systems did not reveal any significant findings. Barium swallow was performed [Figure - 1].
