Pedunculated lymphangiomatous polyps of the tonsil are rare benign lesions that have been described in literature using varied nomenclature. Majority of the cases have been reported in adults with varying clinical symptoms. We report a case of lymphangiomatous polyp of left palatine tonsil in a 14-year-old male child who presented with dysphagia and dysarthria. Clinical examination revealed a large pedunculated polyp arising from upper pole of left tonsil. Patient underwent left tonsillectomy with excision of the polyp. Based on histopathological features a diagnosis of pedunculated lymphangiomatous polyp was made. We discuss the clinical and histopathological features of this lesion with differential diagnosis and short review of literature.
