Abstract

We describe a case of an intraductal mucoepidermoid carcinoma arising from a minor salivary gland of the oral cavity. This is a rare presentation, and our literature review identified only a single previously documented case. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case to be verified by immunohistochemistry demonstrating myoepithelial or basal cells around all the neoplastic units.
