PMID:  8637758     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient with posttraumatic macroglossia has been presented. A literature review reveals that this is a rare sequela of tongue injury and is usually of acute onset. The delayed symptom of swelling in this patient and the exacerbation of swelling in association with hyaluronidase suggest a causal relationship between the two events. Macroglossia has not been reported in association with hyaluronidase injection, and it is recommended that the drug not be used to treat swelling after tongue injury.
