Pages: 231-234
PMID: 9484054

On comparison of the tongue positions with those described in the literature, it was found that the variations in tongue position were negligible. Although the patient had a large facial defect, speech alrity was also not affected. As reconstructive surgery was not immediately feasible, a cheek prosthesis was fabricated for the facial aspect.
