Abstract

Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (EMC) is one of the tumours of the salivary glands. It rarely occurs and accounts less than 1% of all salivary gland tumours. It commonly arises in the major salivary gland especially in the parotid gland, and less frequently in the minor salivary gland. We are reporting a case of a young man diagnosed with EMC in the right hard palate that extended into the maxillary sinus and pterygopalatine fossa. The incidence, clinical features, treatment of choice and the disease progression are discussed in this report.
