A 50-year-old man received radiation therapy and chemotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the right floor of the mouth. Histologic examinations of surgical materials revealed the presence of benign ductal epithelial structures containing mucinous material within a small traumatic neuroma of the mandibular alveolar mucosa. Presumably, the residual salivary ducts of the sublingual glands may become incorporated during the development of a traumatic neuroma secondary to the destruction of tissue. Our search of the literature has failed to reveal a similar recorded occurrence.
