Venous Malformation Case Report

Venous malformations in the maxillofacial region are difficult to manage. Sclerosing agents like hypertonic saline, ethanol, sodium tetradecylsulfate, polidocanol, are recommended for the treatment. The current case reports a venous malformation in the tongue treated with hot saline, a safe, effective and inexpensive modality for treatment of vascular malformations. Proper diagnosis and case selection are a must for the management to minimize possible risks and complications. The findings in this case suggest that sclerotherapy with hot saline is a safe and effective method for treatment.
