Epignathus is a rare congenital head and neck tumor (1 in 35,000-200,000 live births) with many associated complications. We report a rare association of giant epignathus associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation. To our knowledge, only one case of this association has been reported so far. A review of different clinical presentations of epignathus, classification, its reported associations and available management strategies is included.
