Congenital Ranula

September 14, 2005

A 1-day-old neonate was brought for evaluation of a mass on the floor of her mouth. The swelling was fluctuant and had a bluish tint. No bruit was detected. There was mild tongue elevation but no airway obstruction. Other than this swelling, physical examination findings were normal. The infant was born at term and was breast-feeding.
