Mucocele is the most common oral lesion of the minor salivary glands in children and young adults. An 8-year-old male child and a 9-year-old female child presented to our department with a chief complaint of swelling in the inner aspect of the lower lip. On clinical examination, the swelling was fluctuant. Excisional biopsy of the lesion was performed. Histopathological reports confirmed the diagnosis of mucocele. Good prognosis was observed at follow-up.
