Abstract

Among all the epidermoidal cysts originating throughout the body, 7% of them occur in the craniofacial region, with the oral cavity accounting for only 1.6%. Intraorally it is located in the submandibular, sublingual and submental region as a benign, painless lesion. This leads to symptoms such as dysphagia, dyspnoea or may have a malignant transformation potential. Treatment of choice is surgical excision. A case report of epidermoid cyst diagnosed clinically as plunging ranula is discussed.
