Abstract

Minor salivary gland tumours are enigmatic in their behaviour and presentations. Histopathological diagnosis of these tumours encompasses a large spectrum. Conventionally, small nodular tumours of the upper lip or the labial mucosa are generally adenomas, frequently pleomorphic adenomas. Here, we describe a case of a solitary nodular tumour, occurring in the upper labial mucosa, diagnosed as sclerosing polycystic adenoma (SPA) with intraductal epithelial proliferation of high grade. This is a rare lesion, which has entered into the category of salivary gland tumours recently in the 2017 WHO categorisation. We report a case of paucicystic SPA with intraductal epithelial proliferations in the labial minor salivary gland of a 56-year-old woman, which might be the first report of a case occurring in the upper labial mucosa.
