21/41. Extravasation mucocele involving the ventral surface of the tongue (glands of Blandin-Nuhn).

    BACKGROUND: mucocele is a lesion that involves the salivary glands and respective current ducts caused mainly by traumas in the affected area. Two different histological forms can be found: extravasation phenomenon and mucus-retention cyst where the former is the most frequently observed involving minor salivary glands such as the glands present in the anterior portion of the ventral surface of the tongue (glands of Blandin-Nuhn). CASE REPORT: This report describes a large lesion involving the ventral surface of the tongue that was definitively diagnosed by histological examination as extravasation mucocele. CONCLUSION: Important concepts are reviewed to help clinicians correctly diagnose and treat this pathology.

22/41. Salivary gland cysts of the oral cavity: clinical observation and surgical management.

    Mucoceles are common cystic lesions of the oral mucosa. Extravasation mucoceles are mainly found in the lower lip of young patients, whereas retention mucoceles are usually located in the cheek or palate of older patients. The disparate site and age incidences of extravasation and retention mucoceles suggest that these two types are not related and have different pathogenesis. Treatment modalities for mucoceles are reviewed, with special attention to the cryosurgical technique for the treatment of oral ranulas.

23/41. Benign cysts of the parotid gland.

    Benign cysts of the parotid gland are not frequently diagnosed. They occur in any portion of the parotid gland and may be difficult to diagnose. They present with considerable histological variation in their linings. Three cases are presented of unilocular benign cystic lesions of the parotid gland that have been treated by superficial parotidectomy. Two of them were lined by a single or pseudostratified layer of cuboidal epithelium and were diagnosed as retention cysts. The third was a lympho-epithelial cyst and was lined by stratified squamous and partially by pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium. A review of the relevant literature is also presented.

24/41. The mucocele - floor of the mouth.

    Three cases are reported to illustrate certain features related to swellings of the salivary glands. With a mucocele of the floor of the mouth difficulites may arise in the correct identification of the gland of origin, in elucidating the aetiological factors, and in obtaining adequate radiographic or sialographic views of the area. Surgical treatment follows the surgical removal of the involved gland.

25/41. Cervical mucocele (plunging ranula): an unusual case of mucous extravasation cyst.

    An unusual case of a mucous extravasation cyst that manifest itself solely as a cervical swelling is reported. As a result of this unusual symptom, diagnosis and appropriate treatment were delayed, and the condition finally resolved after the ipsilateral sublingual salivary gland was excised and the cervical fluid was aspirated. Cervical mucoceles have also been reported in dogs, and the veterinary literature pertaining to this is briefly reviewed.

26/41. Coexistence of a nasal mucoepidermoid carcinoma and sphenoid mucoceles: CT diagnosis and treatment implications.

    Mucoepidermoid carcinomas of minor salivary gland origin rarely arise in the nasal cavity. A patient with such a tumor in association with bilateral sphenoid sinus mucoceles is presented. This diagnosis was established preoperatively by CT and allowed an attempt at curative surgery to be made. The CT and pathological findings are discussed.

27/41. A mucocele of the submandibular gland.

    We encountered an unusual case of a mucocele arising from the submandibular gland. Among the limited number of cystic salivary gland neoplasms reported in the literature, there have been no reports, to our knowledge, of a similar cystic lesion. The unique characteristics of this mass permitted definitive diagnosis by computed tomographic scanning.

28/41. mucocele-like changes in bartholin's glands.

    Two cases are described in which changes identical to those of oral mucocele occurred in bartholin's glands. The histopathology, histochemistry, and pathogenesis are discussed.

29/41. An unusual complication after excision of a recurrent mucocele of the anterior lingual gland.

    A case report of a recurrent mucous extravasation phenomenon in the anterior lingual gland is presented. Multiple surgical procedures were necessary to eradicate the lesion. Alginate impression material was used during one of the surgical procedures to aid in defining the margins of the lesion. A foreign-body reaction arose in the tongue as a result of residual alginate within the tissues, necessitating further surgery. The use of this technique cannot be recommended in areas where extension into surrounding tissue planes is possible.

30/41. sublingual gland salivary fistula and sialocele.

    A case of cutaneous salivary fistula and sialocele in the submental area, arising from the sublingual gland, is reported and its etiology, development, and management are discussed. The entity of plunging ranula is compared to the lesion the case presented, and the literature regarding this lesion is reviewed. The successful surgical treatment of this case supports the theory that the sublingual gland is the source of the disorder. The effect of the altered salivary function on the adjacent submandibular gland and duct presented an operative complication.
