1/41. submandibular gland mucocele: diagnosis and management.

    Mucoceles originating from the submandibular gland are extremely rare. A review of the English literature resulted in identification of only 5 such cases. We have diagnosed and treated 2 submandibular mucoceles. Both lesions were removed in continuity with the submandibular and sublingual glands. No complications and no recurrences have occurred to date. The diagnosis of these lesions is complicated because of the lack of specific clinical diagnostic criteria and the similarity between submandibular mucoceles and plunging or cervical ranulas. Computerized tomography and specifically the presence of a so-called "tail" sign is pathognomonic for plunging ranula. This sign is absent in mucoceles originating in the submandibular glands. The treatment strategies vary as well. A diagnostic algorithm and a surgical rationale for treatment of submandibular mucoceles are presented.

2/41. Maxillofacial hydatid cysts.

    We report 2 cases of hydatid cysts occurring in the submandibular gland and buccal submucosa, respectively. Our first case occurred in the submandibular salivary gland of a 20-year-old woman and the second involved the buccal submucosa of a 6-year-old boy. Both diagnoses were made after the excision of the lesions. Both patients were evaluated after surgery, and both were followed up, but no other organs were involved.

3/41. mucocele of the anterior lingual salivary glands (glands of Blandin and Nuhn): report of 5 cases.

    The anterior lingual salivary glands (glands of Blandin and Nuhn) are mixed mucous and serous glands that are embedded within the musculature of the anterior tongue ventrum. Five cases of mucocele of the glands of Blandin and Nuhn are presented. These mucoceles on the anterior tongue ventrum were exophytic and resembled pyogenic granulomata, polyps, or squamous papillomata. In 2 cases, the onset of the mucocele was associated with trauma to the anterior tongue. All cases were mucus extravasation phenomena. A history of trauma and recovery of mucus with fine needle aspiration are helpful in the clinical diagnosis of mucocele of the glands of Blandin and Nuhn, as are the following characteristics of the mucocele: rapid onset, increase and reduction in size, bluish color, and fluid-filled consistency. During surgery, the glands that are deep in the tongue musculature are commonly left behind, resulting in persistence of the lesion. Careful clinical evaluation of these lesions and preoperative awareness of the surgical anatomy of the glands of Blandin and Nuhn may minimize the need for repeated surgical procedures.

4/41. Neurinoma in the buccal mucosa.

    A 14-year-old girl was referred to our clinic with a problem of a painless slow growing lesion for approximately three years. MR imaging findings of lesion was "retention cyst of the salivary gland". Controversially, the histological examination of the total excised specimen was "neurinoma" and that was inconsistent with MR findings. Neural tissue tumors of the oral cavity are rare, however, this diagnosis was confirmed by surgical excision and histopathological examination. There was a rare location of the lesion as well.

5/41. Salivary duct cyst: its frequency in a certain Japanese population group (Tohoku districts), with special reference to adenomatous proliferation of the epithelial lining.

    It is reported in the European and American literature that salivary duct cysts constitute about 10% of all cysts of the salivary glands, although they appear to be rare in japan. Between 1975 and 1999, only 3 (0.5%) of 586 salivary gland cysts were diagnosed as salivary duct cysts at the Division of Clinical pathology, Iwate Medical University Hospital. Histologically, two cases appeared as a unilocular lesion lined by double- and multi-layered epithelium. The other case showed marked, intraluminar and intramural adenomatous proliferation of the epithelial lining, suggesting that the lesion was a benign tumor. A review of the literature yielded only two cases of tumors arising in pre-existing salivary duct cysts.

6/41. Treating oral ranula: another case against blanket removal of the sublingual gland.

    There are a number of occasions when ranula-like lesions of the oral floor can develop that do not originate from the sublingual gland, or that arise from the gland with no tendency towards recurrence. The author advises that the unconditional removal of the sublingual gland should not be the standard treatment for all ranulas, and present four case reports to illustrate these and describe how they should be treated. All the patients were treated successfully with conservative management and retained normal functioning sublingual glands. Except for the management of plunging ranulas, caution and a close examination of the origin of the lesion are prudent before considering excision of sublingual glands for all ranula-like lesions.

8/41. mucocele of the anterior lingual salivary glands: from extravasation to an alarming mass with a benign course.

    Mucoceles are common cystic lesions in the oral cavity. However, mucoceles located on the ventral surface of the tongue originating from anterior lingual salivary glands are rare. Only 24 cases were reported in the medical literature, of which most were relatively small lesions measuring less than 20 mm in diameter. This report describes a large-sized mucocele of the anterior lingual salivary glands in an 8-year-old boy who was treated by surgical excision of the lesion. The authors emphasize the importance of preoperative awareness and en bloc excision of the lesion even in asymptomatic patients to avoid further enlargement and complications.

9/41. adenocarcinoma arising in a retained esophageal remnant.

    Fistulation between the trachea and an infected mucocele arising from an excluded retained esophageal segment is an interesting and unusual complication of esophageal bypass surgery. We present such a case in which there was also malignant transformation in the cyst wall, manifested by invasive adenocarcinoma and widespread high-grade glandular dysplasia.

10/41. frontal sinus cancer manifested as a frontal mucocele.

    During the period 1972 to 1974, 12 frontal mucopyoceles were seen. Subsequently, three were shown to have an underlying neoplasm. Evaluation of the roentgenograms demonstrated minor differences between those with and those without a malignant basis. In previous reports of frontal sinus cancer, the descriptions of the roentgenograms suggest that it is possible that these features were also present. The difficulty in deciding the sinus of origin in such cancers has often been discussed, but the possibility that neoplasms of the orbital lobe of the lacrimal gland may occur in the frontal sinus is usually not considered. Anatomically, the intimate proximity of this lobe to the frontal sinus suggests that a neoplasm could develop in this manner. I believe that this was true in two of the patients reported herein.
