Tonsillar lymphangiomatous polyp is an uncommon hamartomatous lesion that generally arises from the tonsillar surface, and it has
rarely been reported in the medical literature. Because of the uncommon clinical and pathological features of these polyps,
pathologists and clinicians may experience difficulty in correctly classifying them. We report a case of pedunculated
lymphangiomatous polyp of palatine tonsil in a 21 year old male with a history of mass which moves with deglutition and foreign
body sensation in the left tonsillar area. Gross examination revealed 1.3×0.5 cm sized polypoid mass was found to be attached to the
tonsil with a slender stalk; it was firm and fibrotic [Fig. 1]. The cut surface was smooth, white to tan. Microscopic examination
revealed a polyp lined by squamous epithelium, and its stroma composed of fibrous tissue along with numerous dilated lymphatic
channels and aggregates of lymphoid tissue.
