Abstract

Basal cell adenoma is a rare benign epithelial tumor of the salivary gland that derives its name

from the basaloid appearance of the tumor cells, accounting for 1–2% of all salivary gland epithelial tumors. We report a case of elderly female with a gradually progressive swelling in the pre auricular region for 1year. Fine needle aspiration cytology of the lesion was inconclusive but its classical histopathological features made a confirmed diagnosis of basal cell adenoma.
 
Key words: Basal cell adenoma, parotid, salivary gland.
