Abstract

Neoplasms of the sublingual salivary glands are very rare and comprise only between 0.5% and 1% of allepithelial salivary tumors and approximately 1.5% of all carcinomas of the major salivary glands. Mucoepidermoidcarcinomas were fi rst described by Masson and Berger in 1924. This paper reports a case of well differentiated mucoepidermoid carcinoma in the floor of the mouth which clinically and cytologically mimicked the tumour ofperineural invasion,adenoid cystic carcinoma
