Ectomesenchymal chondromyxoid tumour (ECMT) is a rare benign tumour which classically presents in the anterior tongue. This tumour is grossly under-reported due to lack of immunohistochemical staining in many centres. We report a 46-year-old man who presented with mass in the anterior tongue and was diagnosed with ECMT. Further management of this lesion is explained with a review of the literature.
