K. Mohamad, S.H. Lau: Ectomesenchymal chondromyxoid tumour of the anterior tongue: A case report. Mal. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg. 2007; 5: 23–27.

Abstract: The ectomesenchymal chondromyxoid tumor (EMCT) of the anterior tongue is a rare and newly described entity. It presents clinically as a firm, painless, and slow growing mass that typically affects the anterior dorsum of the tongue. It has been reported to occur over a wide age range (9 to 78 years) and has no apparent sex predilection. Histologically, the tumor is composed of a well circumscribed, unencapsulated lobular proliferation of fusiform and polygonal cells in a chondromyxoid matrix. We report one such case that conform to the features described for the EMCT in a 32 years old Indian female.
