Myoepithelioma-Plasmacytoid variant of minor salivary gland: Case report with emphasis on histopathological findings

Dr. Janardhan.N* Dr. Ramanjaneyulu.J** Dr.Rajendra Rao*** Dr. Murali Mohan K.V****.


Myoepithelioma is a rare benign neoplasm of salivary glands. Accounts for less than 1% of all salivary gland neoplasms. It is more common in parotid glands foIIowed by small salivary glands. Myoepithelioma once was considered as extreme variant of pleomorphic adenoma. But now-a-days many authors consider the myoepithelioma as distinct pathological entity as it is composed entirely of myoepithelial cells and behaves more aggressive than pleomorphic adenoma(PA). Here we are presenting a case of myoepithelioma-plasmacytoid variant of minor salivary gland of soft palate of a male patient aged about 60 years and discussing about histopathological differential diagnosis of myoepithelioma.

Key words: Myoepithelioma,Minor Salivary Glands tumer.
