Myoepithelial carcinoma is a low-grade malignant tumor of the salivary glands. It is very rare, accounting for < 1% of all salivary gland neoplasm. It is most commonly seen in parotid gland, but has also been reported in the submandibular gland, minor salivary glands and extra oral sites. It is most commonly seen in females; with a peak occurrence in the seventh decade.
