Enigma of myoepithelioma at the base of tongue: A rare case report and review of literature

, : Enigma of myoepithelioma at the base of tongue: A rare case report and review of literature. Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics 11(4): 1038-1038

Myoepithelioma, once considered to be a type of pleomorphic adenoma, is a rare benign tumor of the salivary glands. This uncommon tumor is most commonly diagnosed in the parotid gland and in the minor salivary glands of the palate. We report a case of myoepithelioma located at the base of tongue, a rare site, in a 48-year-old male, composed of spindle shaped myoepithelial cells.
