Figure 4: (a) Dome-shaped translucent swelling on the lower lip with a history of lip biting suggestive of mucocele; (b) well-circumscribed cyst-like cavity filled with spilled mucin and devoid of epithelial lining suggestive of mucocele (Hematoxylin and eosin; 40×); (c) persistent, nontender, diffuse enlargement of the lips and gingiva of a 19-year-old female since a year; (d) connective tissue showing dense chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate with Langhan's type of giant cells attempting to form granulomas (Hematoxylin and eosin; 40×). Inset shows calcified Schaumann body suggestive of sarcoidosis (Hematoxylin and eosin; 400×)
