Rights and Permissions

The mucocele or mucus retention phenomenon is a salivary gland lesion possibly due to a traumatic origin, which is formed when the main duct of a minor salivary gland is torn with subsequent extravasation of the mucus into the fibrous connective tissue such that a cyst like cavity is produced. Mucoceles most commonly occur on the lower lip, followed by the floor of the mouth, with buccal mucosa being the next most frequent site.
