SANTOS, Josiane Nascimento dos et al. Hyperplasia of the sublingual salivary glands: a case report. Rev. cir. traumatol. buco-maxilo-fac. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.3, pp. 13-16. ISSN 1808-5210.

Hyperplasia of the sublingual salivary gland is described as a benign disorder with functional compromise. It presents a slow, progressive and asymptomatic growth of one of or both the sublingual glands. Its etiology remains unspecified, and many factors may be involved. The diagnosis is mostly clinical, complemented by imaging studies. The treatment may be conservative or surgical, depending on the progression status of the disorder. This paper reports a case of sublingual gland hyperplasia in a 39-year-old male patient who was submitted to surgery under local anesthesia.
