Plunging Ranula: A case report
Dr. Baishali Duarah and Dr. Mohaneesh Bhoria
This case report discusses a slowly growing painless swelling in left side of the mouth with extension onto the neck in a 9 year-old male child. Following detailed clinical examination, radiological and histopathological interpretation, a diagnosis of plunging ranula was made. Ranula is a retention cyst of the sublingual gland which enlarges progressively and extends into the surrounding soft tissues. Surgical excision was performed along with the involved sublingual gland. The patient was followed up on a regular basis and showed no recurrence.
