Oral cyst is uncommon in the neonatal period. Depending on the size and site of occurrence, the symptoms may vary. If it not diagnosed and managed expeditiously, these oral cyst may cause significant morbidity and mortality as its can be fatal. We report a successfully managed case of oral cyst in neonate that presented with huge tongue mass at birth with potential impending airway obstruction. She was referred for tracheostomy as intubation was impossible. We attempted needle aspirate and the airway successfully relieved without the need for tracheostomy.

Keywords: Cyst, tongue, oral cavity, neonate, tracheostomy
