Hemangiomas are usually congenital benign vascular tumors mostly found over the skin of head and neck. Tongue hemangiomas are relatively rare. Its treatment may include corticosteroid and beta-blocker therapy, interferon, sclerotherapy using bleomycin, cryotherapy, etc., but surgical therapy is the treatment of choice for solitary hemangioma. Transoral robotic surgery for hemangioma in the anterior tongue can be an added indication for robot-assisted procedure. Robotic technology offers numerous advantages and it can be a promising alternative in dealing with difficult oral cavity lesions like hemangioma.
