Abstract

Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (EMC) arising from the minor salivary gland of the hard palate is very rare. A 34-year-old lady presented with a nodular swelling in the hard palate. Histopathologically, a diagnosis of clear cell predominant EMC was suggested. Immunohistochemistry demonstrated the biphasic nature of the tumor and confirmed the diagnosis of EMC.
