Basal Cell Adenoma – A Report of a Rarity in a Relatively Rare Site
Keywords:Basal cell adenoma, Monomorphic adenoma, Palate
Basal cell adenoma is a rare benign neoplasm of the salivary gland. It preferentially occurs in the parotid gland
and upper lip during the sixth and seventh decades of life. The clinical presentation most frequently seen
is a slow-growing, asymptomatic, movable, round or oval, normally coloured submucosal mass measuring
less than 3.0 cm in diameter, encapsulated and well circumscribed. Histologically, the tumor consists of a
proliferation of the terminal duct epithelial cells forming islands and sheets with sparse of fibrous stroma,
and numbers of small myoepithelial cells are present . Here is a report of a rare case of basal cell adenoma
in a relatively rare site of palate presented to our department.
