21/37. Plunging ranula localized in the parapharyngeal space.

    Plunging ranulas are a mucous extravasation and usually originate from the sublingual gland. They dissect between the facial planes and muscle of the base of the tongue to the submandibular triangle. We report here a rare case of plunging ranula localized in the parapharyngeal space. The relevant anatomy is reviewed and discussed.

22/37. The plunging ranula. Pathogenesis, diagnosis and management.

    Ranulas are cysts resulting from retention, or extravasation of saliva from the sublingual gland. Two varieties are described: a superficial or oral ranula and a cervical or plunging ranula. The plunging ranula is located below the mylohyoid muscle and may present as a swelling in the upper part of the neck. Four cases are described to illustrate that this condition can be the cause of a neck swelling. Aetiology, differential diagnosis and surgical management are also discussed. Recurrences are mainly due to unfamiliarity with this phenomenon and ignorance of its aetiology. Successful treatment of the plunging ranula consists of excision of the ipsilateral sublingual salivary gland, which is the source of this disorder, and intra-oral evacuation of the pseudocyst of the neck swelling. There is no need for an extensive neck dissection of the cervical extension.

23/37. Plunging ranula: literature review and report of three cases.

    Three cases of plunging ranula are described and the literature is reviewed. In many cases, a plunging ranula is iatrogenic and follows surgery to an oral ranula. In the cases presented, the cervical swelling was associated with prolongations of sublingual gland into or through the mylohyoid muscle. All patients were cured by partial or total excision of the sublingual gland.

24/37. ranula and sarcoid granuloma of a sublingual gland.

    A case is reported in which the treatment of the ranula consisted of dissection of the cystic wall along with excision of the sublingual gland of origin. The histological picture of the gland was consistent with sarcoidosis. Thereafter, all other examinations were negative for sarcoidosis. However, there remains the possibility that the lesion may be the precursor of widespread sarcoidosis which might occur in the future.

25/37. Cervical ranula arising from a projection of the sublingual gland through the mylohyoid muscle.

    A case of cervical ranula is presented, which originated from a projection of the sublingual gland into the suprahyoid region. A diagnosis of cervical ranula could not be established preoperatively because there was no intraoral involvement of the ranula. A cervical approach was used, and the correct diagnosis was made during the operation.

26/37. Plunging or cervical ranula. review of the literature and report of 4 cases.

    A review of the literature pertaining to plunging ranula is presented with special emphasis on the historical development of the various aetiological theories and treatment recommendations. Also 4 cases of plunging ranula are presented; three were treated by extirpation of the sublingual gland and one was treated by exteriorization of the ranula into the oral cavity. The treatment methods used here are discussed in relationship to the accepted aetiological theory.

27/37. Plunging ranula in an infant.

    This unusual case extends the age range of persons with plunging ranula to include those with congenital neonatal submandibular masses. The congenital nature of plunging ranula has not been widely discussed. Clinical diagnosis can be reinforced by diagnostic imaging (CT, MRI) if the mass extends into or abuts the sublingual space. Definitive treatment (generally excision) leads to resolution of the mass and prevention of recurrence.

28/37. 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.

29/37. Plunging ranula: a report of three cases and review of the literature.

    Three cases of plunging ranula are reported and the literature reviewed. Extravasation of saliva from the sublingual gland due to trauma or obstruction of its ducts appears to be the most likely cause of plunging ranula. Available data suggest that the submandibular gland is usually not involved, although at the time of surgery it may be extremely difficult to exclude a submandibular origin of the cyst in the neck. communication between the oral and cervical components of the plunging ranula probably occur via a hiatus in the mylohyoid muscle. Such communication passing directly into the submandibular compartment may simulate submandibular gland involvement. Since 1910, 139 procedures in 89 patients with plunging ranula have been reported in the English literature. The recurrence rate was 70 per cent after incision and drainage of the cyst, 53 per cent after marsupialization, 85 per cent after excision of the cyst in the neck and 2 per cent after excision of the sublingual gland via the cervical or intra-oral route. This review suggests that excision of the sublingual gland with intra-oral drainage of the cervical swelling appears to be the treatment of choice for the plunging ranula.

30/37. Cervical ranula.

    Ranulas are mucous extravasation cysts, and usually originate from the sublingual salivary gland. They may occasionally infiltrate the tissue planes of the neck and present as a cervical tumour. The literature is reviewed, and four personal cases of cervical ranula presented. Successful treatment may be achieved in the vast majority of cases by removal of the sublingual salivary gland.
