Venous malformations (VMs) are congenital slow flow vascular malformations that are usually present at birth. They grow proportionate with the age and do not regress with time differentiating them from hemangiomas. VM presents as bluish discoloration of skin/mucosa or as soft subcutaneous masses. It may affect any organ, including viscera-like gastrointestinal tract or brain. VM is generally slowly progressive and asymptomatic as they grow slowly with age. We report the case of asymptomatic giant VM over the tongue for which the patient presented due to herpetic stomatitis.
