Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common benign salivary gland tumor. It exhibits wide cytomorphologic and architectural diversity owing to different proportions of its epithelial, myoepithelial and stromal components. Mucoepidermoid metaplasia in pleomorphic adenoma is very unusual and entails the need of a careful analysis of this tumor and its distinction from its malignant counterparts. A rare case of pleomorphic adenoma with mucoepidermoid metaplasia in a middle aged female is reported here.
