Solitary angiokeratoma circumscriptum (AC) of the tongue is a rare entity. We present a case of solitary AC over the ventral surface of the tongue present for 3 years. The patient was treated with a combination of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and pulsed dye laser (PDL). There was more than 75% improvement in the lesion after treating with alternate sessions of CO 2 and PDL.
