Soft tissue sarcomas are rare malignant neoplasms (about 1% of all malignances). The leiomyosarcoma of the tongue is a very rare tumor with only 9 cases described in the literature. This article describes a case report of a primary leiomyosarcoma of the lateral border of the tongue treated with local excision that has been free of recurrence for 4 years. Also described in this article is a new technique to stabilize the tongue during surgery.
