Oral extravasation mucoceles are among the most widely recognized submucosal lesions which are usually a result of trauma involving salivary glands and their ducts. This paper reports a case of a 40-year-old female patient with a chief complaint of a painless swelling on the lower lip since 6 months. Upon a provisional diagnosis of mucocele, surgical excision was carried out. Histopathological examination revealed a mucus extravasation cyst having lumen filled with unique mucinous globular structures similar to a rare variant of appendiceal mucocele, myxoglobulosis.
