Ranula is a mucus extravasation cyst arising from the sublingual gland. The name DQranulaDQ has been derived from the Latin word DQranaDQ which means DQfrog.DQ The swelling resembles a frogSQs translucent underbelly or air sacs. Ranula usually appears as a painless, fluctuant swelling. It usually occurs unilaterally and in young adults. This paper reviews and highlights a case report of ranula in the floor of the mouth that has been successfully treated by marsupialization. A 14-year-old female suffered from unilateral swelling in the floor of the mouth that had been enlarging slowly over the past 4 months. Conventional marsupialization was done. No complication was observed during the postoperative period, and there was no recurrence in the 24 months follow-up period.
