An incidental radiolucent lesion involving the angle of the mandible

Published:October 13, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.oooo.2022.10.003
      A 58-year-old white female was referred to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon for evaluation of a soft tissue lesion on the left lower lip with a clinical impression of mucocele. At the time of the appointment, the lesion had significantly decreased in size. The clinical diagnosis of a resolving mucocele was established, and the patient decided to monitor the lesion. Extraoral and intraoral examination failed to reveal any significant asymmetry or mass effect besides the referred area on the lower lip. The patient had all 4 third molars extracted at age 19 with no complications. The patient's medical history was significant for hypertension and atrial fibrillation (managed with amlodipine, valsartan, furosemide, rivaroxaban, and carvedilol), hyperglycinemia (managed with simvastatin), and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (managed with the use of a CPAP machine at bedtime). The patient also had a breast fibroadenoma excised in 2012 with no complications. She reported allergies to penicillin and codeine and was regularly taking vitamin D and potassium supplements. The remaining social, familial, and dental history were noncontributory.
