Rhabdomyoma, by definition is a benign muscle tumour.. Rhabdomyomas constitute 2% of all myogenous neoplasms. This tumour is in incongruence with other benign soft tissue tumours, in that it is rarer than its malignant counterpart. They are broadly categorised as cardiac and extra-cardiac. Three different subtypes exists as 1) the adult type, 2) the fetal type and 3) the genital type, the adult type being the most common.[1] AR (Adult Rhabdomyoma) generally occurs in the 4th and 5th decade with a male predilection.[2] There have been very few presentations of this lesion in the paediatric age group. Here we present a case of lingual adult rhabdomyoma in an 11 year old girl.
