Evaluation of foamed lauromacrogol sclerotherapy as a possible primary
treatment for ranula: A case report
AbstractRanula are mucous cysts of salivary gland origin. The traditional
treatment is surgery to resect the ranula but it has disadvantages such
as postoperative pain, perioperative risks, and surgical side effects.
Our team firstly reported the case of a 21-year-old man with an
extraoral ranula who was successfully treated with foamed lauromacrogol
sclerotherapy. The extraoral ranula disappeared during the one-year
follow-up, and no adverse events were noted. This therapy can
potentially become a primary treatment for extraoral ranula.
