13 Possible Causes for Submental Mass

  • Thyroglossal Cyst

    The patient's chief complaint was a submental mass. The mass was 6 x 4 cm, elastic, soft, and smooth-surfaced.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sign out No history provided MASS, SUBMENTAL (MIDLINE), EXCISION: - SQUAMOUS LINED CYST WITH EXTENSIVE DENUDATION AND, ACUTE AND CHRONIC INFLAMMATION. - BENIGN SKELETAL MUSCLE[librepathology.org] The Sistrunk surgical technique, extended to the submental and intra lingual region was used to radically remove the mass.[scienceopen.com]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    Submental mass secondary to toxoplasmosis is not common in clinical work. A diagnosis of toxoplasmosis is rarely considered by physicians.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ludwig's Angina

    She had multiple predictors of difficult intubation, including what appeared to be a submental mass consistent with Ludwig's angina.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She went on to receive an urgent tracheotomy because of those predictors but had full resolution of the submental mass on removal of the extraglottic airway device, which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cervical Lymphadenitis

    A case is reported of a 52-year-old lady who presented with a swelling of the submental region of unknown aetiology mimicking a dental abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following an excision biopsy of the lesion, the histopathology report revealed a mass of lymph nodes with granulomatous inflammation strongly suggestive of infective aetiology[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hamartoma

    Clinical examination revealed an erythematous, tender, fluctuant sublingual mass (5 cm 3 cm) reaching from the submental area to the mouth floor.[doi.org] An ultrasound detected a small retention cyst in the subcutaneous tissue, not extending beyond the submental fat.[doi.org] Discussion Choristoma is a mass consisting of normal tissue in an abnormal location. [3] The pathogenesis of lingual choristoma is still uncertain; they are probably derivatives[doi.org]

  • Dermoid Cyst

    CASE REPORT: A 23-year-old man was admitted for a submental submandibular sublingual mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herein, we report a case of 19-year-old woman who applied to emergency service with dyspnea, dysphagia and enlarging of a mass in the submental region.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cysts that develop at the floor of the mouth are shown to be painless and a slow-growing mass in the submental, submandibular and sublingual region is observed.[symptoma.com]

  • Teratoma

    Additionally, preoperative planning and intraoperative navigation was advanced with the use of a 3D constructed model of the patient's mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of a large skull base defect in a six week-old infant, after removal of a giant cranio-cervicofacial teratoma, which was reconstructed using a versatile submental[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis

    RESULTS: All female patients had the obesity-like appearance of type II MSL and the most frequent locations of lipomatous masses in women were at the proximal arms (90.9%)[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Very few female patients (27.3%) presented with the submental deposition of lipomatous tissue typical of both type I (97.3%; P CONCLUSIONS: Female patients with MSL had a[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Lymphadenopathic Toxoplasmosis

    We had a case of a 10-year-old boy with a painless mass resembling a lymph node in the submental lesion of about four days duration.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • Kleine-Levin Syndrome

    His weight was 56 kg and height was 132 cm, leading to body mass index (BMI) of 32.18. His neck circumference was 34 cm.[doi.org] His craniofacial examination showed presence of central obesity, dental overjet, Mallampatti grade IV upper airway, submental fat and high arched palate.[doi.org]
