Lymphangiomas are congenital benign tumors of lymphatic system commonly found in the head and neck
region but they are extremely rare entity in the oral cavity. The common site of occurrence for lymphangioma

of oral cavity such as the palate, cheeks, floor of the mouth, gingiva and lips. The most accepted treatment
option for lymphangioma is complete surgical excision. There is only a minimal chance of recurrence. In
