VIII.q

Tongue involvement (edema, hematoma)

See also under VIIIa. Typically acute. May be due to edema, hematoma or rigidity. Increased tongue volume can cause serious breathing difficulties by obstructing the air passage and compressing the soft palate. Asphyxia may ensue. Speedy control of the airway is essential
