Oropharynx glial heterotopia is a congenital anomaly, whereby ectopic mature glial tissue is found around oropharynx isolated from the brain and spinal cord. Herein we report a rare presentation of a mass at the base of tongue in a neonate. In addition to underscore the rarity of oropharynx glial heterotopia, we discuss the dilemma in approaching its diagnosis and management in a neonate.

Keywords: glial heterotopia, base of tongue, congenital
