Head and neck is the site of numerous swellings of different etiology and presentations. This article will describe various head and neck swellings with unusual presentation. 4 cases were evaluated i.e. lipoma of the tongue, lipoma as midline neck swelling, infected ranula, epidermal inclusion cyst. All these swellings were presented unusually because of their site, size and inflamed skin over the swelling.
To conclude, few head and neck swellings will show unusual presentation. So, each head and neck swelling case needs systematic evaluation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
