Among the all salivary gland lesions, pleomorphic adenoma is commonest, and comprises of 30% of all lesions. Of the non neoplastic lesions, sialadenitis is commonest and of malignant neoplastic lesions mucoepidermoid carcinoma is more frequent. Conclusions: Histopathological examination of salivary gland lesions is the most important method in differential diagnosis of nonneoplastic and neoplastic lesions and in establishing the final diagnosis.
