Abstract

Sebaceous lymphadenoma is a benign rare tumor of the salivary glands, with reported cases accounting for less than 0.2% of all salivary gland neoplasms. Its etiopathogenesis is controversial and within the postulated theories, the sebaceous differentiation in salivary glands is thought to be related to hormonal influences. We describe an unusual case of sebaceous lymphadenoma in a patient with previous breast cancer, identified as an incidental finding of a parotid deep lobe lesion on computerized tomography, and treated with surgical excision.
