Lymphangiomas are benign congenital tumors of the lymphatic system. Tonsillar lymphangiomas are extremely rare. Histopathological confirmation is essential to make the correct diagnosis. We report a case of primary lymphangioma of the left tonsil in a 17-year-old male patient who presented with difficulty in swallowing and was clinically diagnosed as a tonsillar cyst.
