 Basal cell adenoma(BCA) of minor salivary glands is an uncommon type of monomorphic adenoma. Most frequent location is the parotid gland and usually appears as a firm and mobile slow-growing mass which is histologically, char cterized as nests of isomorphic cells and interlaced trabeculae with a prominent basal membrane. There is also slack, hyaline stroma with absence of a myxoid or chondroid component. We describe a case of Basal Cell Adenoma of palatal minor salivary glands, a rare site for its occurrence.
