Extrarenal angiomyolipoma is a rare subtype of benign lipomatous tumor composed of adipose tissue, blood vessels, and smooth muscle. We report a 60-year-old woman who developed an angiomyolipomatous tumor of the tongue and discuss the differential diagnosis along with a review of the literature. The term angiomyolipomatous hamartoma is proposed for the present lesion to distinguish it from classic oral angiomyolipoma.
