A case of cervical ranula is presented, which originated from a projection of the sublingual gland into the suprahyoid region. A diagnosis of cervical ranula could not be established preoperatively because there was no intraoral involvement of the ranula. A cervical approach was used, and the correct diagnosis was made during the operation.
