Abstract

Swelling of the floor of the mouth is sometime difficult to diagnose clinically. Lithiasis and neoplasm are the most frequent causes of intraoral swelling. Also after plain radiology and computed tomography the diagnosis is often dubious. A case of swelling of the floor of the mouth due to an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the sublingual gland is reported.
