Abstract

A low-grade mucoepidermoid tumor rich in melanin has been reported. According to the collective personal experience of the authors and a literature review, such lesions are thought to be rare. It is not anticipated that melanocytic participation will alter the prognosis; however, only long-term followup and reports of any similar lesions of salivary gland will assist in clarifying the nature and significance of this lesion.
