AUTHOR(S): Mehta Kanishk, Bhatia Gunjan and Mehta Heena
ABSTRACT:Myoepithelioma is a rare benign tumor of salivary gland. Myoepithelioma of the hard palate is uncommon and only a limited number of cases have been reported in the literature. It was considered to be a type of pleomorphic adenoma but are today believed to be separate, relatively aggressive tumors. Myoepithelioma are most commonly seen in 30-50 years age group. We report a case of myoepithelioma located in the hard palate in a 23 year old pregnant female. The tumor was composed of plasmacytoid my epithelial cells. This case is probably first case in literature to occur in a pregnancy.
