Abstract

“CLEAR CELL VARIANT OF MUCOCELE – A CASE REPORT”

*Dr. Sushruth Nayak, M.D.S, Dr. Prachi Nayak, M.D.S, Dr. Manisha Sahu

ABSTRACT

Mucocele is a common lesion of the oral mucosa that results from an alteration of minor salivary glands due to a mucous accumulation. Mucocele involves mucin accumulation causing limited swelling. Two histological types exist - extravasation and retention. Mucoceles can appear at any site of the oral mucosa where minor salivary glands are present. The most common location of the extravasation mucocele is the lower lip, while retention mucoceles can be found at any other site. Mucoceles can affect the general population, but most commonly young patients. We report a case of 26 -year-old man who presented an asymptomatic translucent swelling on the lower labial mucosa which was clinically diagnosed as mucocele. Histologically it showed macrophage proliferation with numerous clear cell populations. This unusual presentation expands the microscopic spectrum in diagnosis of oral mucoceles and also can lead to differential diagnosis with primary or metastatic clear cell neoplasms.

Keywords: Clear cell, lip, mucocele.
