Abstract

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), an indolent neoplasm of B lymphocytes, is the most common adult leukemia in the Western Hemisphere. Despite this, however, the intraoral presentation of CLL is quite rare. We report the case of an 83-year-old woman with CLL incidentally involving minor salivary glands in association with a ranula (floor-of-mouth mucocele).
