Özet

A very rare case of isolated plexiform neurofibroma with a painless enlarging mass of the tongue of a 5-year-old girl is presented. This rare benign tumor has the potential for malignant transformation, and the diagnosis was difficult owing to the patient's age and to the insidious clinical presentation.
