Abstract

Mucoceles are common cystic lesions in the oral cavity. It may occur in different locations in the oral mucosa due to trauma or obstruction of minor salivary gland ducts with the lower lip as the predominant site followed by the floor of the mouth, with buccal mucosa being the next most frequent site. However, mucoceles located on the ventral surface of the tongue originating from the anterior lingual salivary glands are extremely rare and often overlooked during screening procedures because of their asymptomatic nature. Here, we report an interesting case of mucocele in the anterior ventral surface of the tongue in a seven year old male patient The literature review outlines the various types of mucocele, its epidemiology, pathogenesis, differential diagnosis and the various treatment modalities.

Keywords: Mucocele; Cyst; MRI
