A 29-year-old male patient presented at the Oral Medicine Clinic with the complaint of slow-growing growths on his tongue, causing discomfort. Extra-oral examination revealed several painless soft tissue nodules on his face (Figure 1 and 2), trunk (Figure 3), back (Figure 4) and arms. The patient reported that the lesions had appeared during childhood and had since increased in size and number. He was unaware of any family history of the disease. Intra-oral examination showed two soft tissue nodules on the midline of the dorsal surface of the tongue, 3,5cm and 0,5 cm in diameter respectively (Figure 5).
