  • Blandin and Nuhn mucocele in a pediatric patient. [Case Reports]
    J Indian Soc Pedod Prev Dent 2018 Jul-Sep; 36(3):315-318Jose SC, Abraham KK, Khosla E
  • Oral mucoceles are benign lesions that may appear in any location on the mucosal surfaces of the oral cavity where underlying minor salivary glands are found. The lower lip is the most frequently affected and the most widely reported location. Mucoceles involving the glands of Blandin and Nuhn are infrequent and constitute only about 1.9%-10.3% of the reported cases. Superficial mucoceles are a r…
  • The Application of Absolute Ethanol in the Treatment of Mucocele of the Glands of Blandin-Nuhn. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg 2016; 27(7):e641-e642Zhang J, Wang C
  • Mucocele of the anterior lingual salivary glands is a more common cystic lesion, especially in patients aged less than 20 years. The study is aimed to observe the effect of treatment by injection of absolute ethanol instead of surgery. Fourteen outpatients diagnosed as mucocele of the glands of Blandin-Nuhn were selected. These patients, after blood investigation, were treated by injection of abs…
  • A novel technique for the management of blandin-nuhn mucocele: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2013; 6(3):201-4Kumaresan R, Karthikeyan P, … Thapasum Fairozekhan A

  • Mucocele of the glands of Blandin-Nuhn--clinical, pathological, and therapeutical aspects. [Review]
    Oral Maxillofac Surg 2011; 15(1):11-3Adachi P, Soubhia AM, … Shinohara EH
  • CONCLUSIONS: The glands of Blandin-Nuhn are localized in the ventral part of the tongue, next to the apex in the lingual median plane. Development of a mucocele in this site is rarely seen; besides, as the glands of Blandin-Nuhn are not encapsulated and are directly overlapped to the muscle tissues, their manipulation tends to be different from the other oral mucoceles.As Blandin-Nuhn mucoceles are uncommon and their clinical appearance could be similar to other lesions, it is important that health professionals know their clinical and histopathological features to avoid having them misdiagnosed.
