is called the plunging ranula when it affects the submandibulary
space and adjacent structures in the
neck. There are a lot of different methods used in

ranula case which was performed by excision of
the pseudocyst and ipsilateral sublingual gland with
transoral approach in a five-year-old girl. There has
