Observations: A short lingual frenulum and a lack of tone of the lingual and supra-hyoidal muscles could influence a OSA in a teenager, refractory to conventional treatment. The therapy is based on surgery and rehabilitation with polysomnographic surveillance. Comments: The aggravating factors were to be noted during the treatment. No article in the literature put this relationship into perspective. Conclusion: The results obtained were inconclusive. This line of research could interest the scientific community in order to guide the physiopathological knowledge of the disorder and to optimize the possibilities of therapeutic response in case functions.
Key words: OSA / lingual frenulum / muscular hypotonia
