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.
