Abstract

Sleep apnea is an entity that is becoming more commonly diagnosed as the signs and symptoms are becoming better understood. In this report, the first known case of sleep apnea secondary to a lipoma of the submandibular area of the neck is presented. A brief discussion of the types of sleep apnea, along with the most common signs and symptoms of the entity, are reported. The diagnostic workup, operative findings, and postoperative results in this patient are discussed.
