This study describes a case report of a female stroke patient with an oral self-injury. She was admitted to a palliative care hospital and after two weeks of hospitalization she presented with a severe tongue injury caused by frequent biting. We proposed a course of curative treatment and preventive measures to prevent re-injury. We also present a short literature review of these types of injuries. Even though this is only a case report on self-injury in stroke patients, our approaches were different from those described previously in the literature; we used a new combination of a silicon device and laser therapy to treat this lesion.
