Varix is a dilated, tortuous vein, most commonly a vein which is subjected to increased hydrostatic pressure but poorly supported by surrounding tissue. Most commonly it involves lingual ranine veins on the tongue. In this article, an exceptionally rare and unique case of varicosities of the palate including uvula has been reported.
