Choristomas are tumor-like masses consisting of normal cells in an abnormal location. Choristomas of the oral cavity are rare lesions. We report a case of Cartilaginous choristoma on the ventral aspect of the tongue in a 25-year-old female. Clinical features, differential diagnosis, and tumoral origin theories are also discussed along with a meta-analysis of the reported cases in the PubMed database.
