Buccal Monomorphic Adenoma: a case report

Bharat Bhushan Sharma, Naveen Bhardwaj, Shweta Sharma, Mir Rizwan Aziz1, Sakshi Dewan, Seema Nagger.

Background: Minor salivary gland benign tumors constitute a very small fraction of salivary gland tumors. The majority of monomorphic adenomas arise from the main salivary glands but rarely these can arise from the minor salivary glands of the buccal mucosa.
Case presentation: We present 60-years old female who reported for the slow growing swelling on her right cheek for over three years. She was diagnosed of having monomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary gland after ultrasound (US), contrast enhanced computerized tomography (CECT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies with additional confirmation by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC).
Conclusion: Dynamic contrast MRI played a key role in assessment of the mass for its benign nature before the surgical contemplation. This was also confirmed subsequently by the histopathology examination.

Key words: Minor salivary glands, monomorphic adenoma, US, CECT, MRI, FNAC
