OK-432 injection therapy for plunging ranula

OK-432 injection therapy for plunging ranula A 31-year-old woman had a ranula of the right sublingual salivary gland for 2 years. It gradually extended into the right parapharyngeal space and it was treated with intralesional OK-432 injections. After aspiration of 2 ml of the fluid, 2 ml of OK-432 (0.5 KE) was injected. A pyrexia of 39°C was observed over the first 2 days and a mild fever continued for the following 4 days. She had general fatigue and local pain for the first 2 days; the pain was controlled by oral analgesics. This mild swelling gradually settled and disappeared at 1 month post-injection. At 3 months post-injection an MRI scan confirmed resolution of the lesion. At 1 year there was no evidence of recurrence. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

A 31-year-old woman had a ranula of the right sublingual salivary gland for 2 years. It gradually extended into the right parapharyngeal space and it was treated with intralesional OK-432 injections. After aspiration of 2 ml of the fluid, 2 ml of OK-432 (0.5 KE) was injected. A pyrexia of 39°C was observed over the first 2 days and a mild fever continued for the following 4 days. She had general fatigue and local pain for the first 2 days; the pain was controlled by oral analgesics. This mild swelling gradually settled and disappeared at 1 month post-injection. At 3 months post-injection an MRI scan confirmed resolution of the lesion. At 1 year there was no evidence of recurrence.
