Abstract

A handful of cases of cribriform adenocarcinoma of the tongue have been reported in the literature, but in none of these cases was the tumor pedunculated. By the time these patients sought treatment, most of the tumors had metastasized to the cervical lymph nodes. We report the case of a 65-year-old woman who had a large, pedunculated, cribriform adenocarcinoma that had arisen from the base of the tongue. This case was also unusual because the tumor had not metastasized. The patient was treated with surgery and radiotherapy. To the best of our knowledge, cribriform pedunculated adenocarcinoma of the base of the tongue has not been previously reported.
