Salivary gland duct cyst arising in a minor salivary gland on the floor of the mouth: A case report
Brooks, John K. / Funari, Gary J. / Basile, John R.
The salivary gland duct cyst (SGDC) is not commonly encountered on the floor of the mouth and few well-documented case reports are available. To increase the knowledge of this lesion, this report features a diminutive SGDC in a 54-year-old man. Commentary is offered as to the relevance of the affected patient's antecedent history of cholelithiasis.
