The term Ranula is a Latin word meaning frog. It refers to a bluish translucent cystic lesion in the floor of the mouth resembling the underbelly of a frog. Ranulas can be true cysts occurring due to ductal obstruction of the sublingual gland or a minor salivary gland or a pseudocyst as a result of ductal injury leading to extravasation and accumulation of saliva in the surrounding tissues. Clinically ranulas present as intraoral or plunging ranulas. The prevalence of ranula is 0.2% per 1000 patients Ranulas account for 6% of all salivary gland cysts...

This article reviews the multimodality diagnostic imaging features of benign neoplastic and nonneoplastic tumors associated with the major salivary glands. Examples of neoplastic conditions that are depicted and discussed include pleomorphic adenoma, Warthin tumor, oncocytoma, peripheral nerve sheath tumors, lipoma, and hemangiomas or hemangioendotheliomas. Examples of nonneoplastic conditions that are depicted and discussed include ranulas, benign lymphoepithelial lesions, Kimura disease, and vascular malformations...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical features and treatment outcomes in order to determine the optimal management of ranulas in our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department with long-term results. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was performed to evaluate patients with a final diagnosis of a simple or plunging ranula at Lille Teaching Hospital from May 2000 to January 2017. Clinical data on ranulas that were reviewed included gender, age, symptoms, location of the lesion, surgical procedures, complications, recurrence and follow-up...

Plunging ranulas are rare; report of this condition is particularly limited in our environment. We present case series in children; with all cases having both oral and cervical components. It is important to note this type of presentation of plunging ranula and their appropriate management.

The two-incision fistula technique for the treatment of oral ranulas has recently been introduced to clinical practice. We reviewed 52 patients who had recurrences after this treatment, and explored the possible causes and underlying mechanisms. A total of 13/53 ranulas had recurred, so we repeated the operation, and one patient had the ranula and the sublingual gland resected. We found that the thin mucous membrane cracked at the double incisions, which led to the formation of a fistula and promoted the drainage of cystic fluid...

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common salivary gland malignancy. The submandibular gland is rarely involved, about less than 10% of all other major salivary glands. We report a case of a 49-year-old female who presented with a mass on the left side of the floor of the mouth. She was complaining of neck pain for the last 2-3 days and had noticed the mass growing in size and becoming tender to palpation. There was no exacerbation of pain during eating, drinking, or opening of mouth. A multidetector CT scan was made...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Plunging ranulas are oral mucoceles that often cannot be visualized directly and thus can be challenging to diagnose and differentiate from other neck lesions. Surgery is the preferred treatment option, but the optimal approach requires careful consideration. METHODS: We report the case of a plunging ranula presenting as an isolated neck mass in a 33-year-old patient. This patient was treated with a novel transoral robotic surgery (TORS)-assisted approach aided by sialendoscopy...

Cystic lesions involving the tongue base are rare, generally presenting in pediatric patients, and they may encompass different pathologies such as ranula, lingual ectopic thyroid, thyroglossal duct cyst (TDC), dysontogenetic cysts, benign, and malignant tumors.This paper describes the case of a 19-year-old girl with phonation impairment and mild dysphagia due to limited tongue protrusion and movements. Radiologic examinations revealed a bulky cystic lesion at the base of tongue with displacement of extrinsic lingual muscles...

Congenital ranula is rare. We report a large, symptomatic, congenital plunging ranula associated with a salivary gland cyst in the neck. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first such reported case. Even though both the cysts had their origin from the sublingual gland, only the cervical cyst had a capsular covering. Herniation of a part of the immature sublingual gland anlage through a congenital mylohyoid defect, its separation, and subsequent maturation could explain this occurrence.

CONTEXT: Primary Sjögren syndrome is uncommon in children, and the standard clinical criteria used in diagnosis of adult Sjögren syndrome will miss many children with the disease. Floor of mouth ranulas have not been described in Sjögren syndrome.

A ranula is a lesion that arises from mucin spillage from the sublingual or submandibular gland ducts, beneath the mucosa of the oral floor. A plunging or cervical ranula dissects the mylohyoid muscle and appears as a submandibular swelling. Rarely, a plunging ranula is encountered without its oral counterpart. Here, we report a rare case of a plunging ranula that occurred without its oral counterpart in a 11-year-old male patient. We have also discussed the pathogenesis and treatment options for the ranula...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to analyse allelic loss of the PTEN gene and its protein immunoexpression in dysplastic oral lesions and oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Samples were collected from 153 patients (20 ranulas used as a control - C, 30 leukoplakias with mild dysplasia - MD, 30 leukoplakias with moderate to severe dysplasia - MSD, and 73 OSCC). PTEN protein expression was investigated using immunohistochemistry, and PTEN allelic loss was analysed by fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH)...

An elderly female patient presented to surgical outpatient clinic with complaint of gradual onset of painless submental and sublingual midline swellings for 6 months of duration. The swellings were noncompressible, nontranslucent, nonpulsatile, and nontender on palpation. Clinical diagnosis was plunging ranula or dermoid cysts. Ultrasound examination of sublingual swelling showed cystic lesion with particulate content. Submental swelling showed cystic swelling with few echogenic floating lobules inside suggesting possibility of epidermoid/dermoid cyst...

Lesions in the floor of the mouth can be a challenging diagnosis due to the variety of pathological conditions that might be found in this area. Within a broad range of lesions, attention has to be addressed to those that require specific management, such as a dermoid cyst (DC) and a ranula. Especially in pediatric patients, in whom the failure of diagnosis can postpone the correct treatment and cause sequelae later in life. DC, a developmental anomaly, is managed primarily by surgical resection. On the other hand, ranula is a pseudocyst that may be treated by marsupialization...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Surgical excision of an affected sublingual gland for treatment of a ranula can carry a potential of a nerve damage or postoperative complications. However, there have been little studies about effective minimally invasive therapeutic method, yet. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ethanol ablation of ranulas and the clinicoradiologic factors that can predict outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study evaluated 23 patients with ranulas treated by percutaneous ethanol ablation...

Ranulas pose a challenging situation, both clinically and surgically, because of their location on the floor of the mouth, an area that exhibits tightly-netted vital structures. Several treatments have been proposed, including excision with or without removal of the sublingual gland, marsupialization with or without cauterization of the roof of the lesion, drainage of the lesion, and micro-marsupialization. It has been suggested that a modified micro-marsupialization technique can establish drainage of saliva and formation of new permanent epithelized tracts along the path of sutures, thereby reducing the recurrence...
