Lymphangiomas also known as benign lymphatic hamartomas are rare lymphatic malformations. They most commonly present from birth to two years of age, with (90%) presenting at 2-years of age. The most common site of presentation is the head and neck with 75% occurring in the oral cavity. The majority of oral lymphangiomas occur in the dorsal aspect of the tongue. Here we present a case of lymphangioma in a female neonate in the floor of the mouth which had presentation similar to ranula and was operated without any recurrence.
