Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) of the tongue is an extremely rare mesenchymal tumor. Till now, we came across about 24 cases of tongue LMS reported in the literature. Here, we are presenting the case of a 50-year-old female with 4 months history of ulcerative growth on the tongue along with difficulty in swallowing and tongue movement who was diagnosed with LMS of the tongue on histopathology. He was managed with surgical excision followed by radiotherapy without any recurrence or metastasis after 6 months of follow-up.
