Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is one of the tumors originating from the salivary glands and classified as a malignant tumor by many authors. This tumor usually occurs in the parotid gland and the hard palate but rarely in the buccal region.
A case of this tumor in the buccal mucosa was reported. A 30-year-old female complained of a mass in her left buccal region. The mass was resected under local anesthesia. Histopathological examination revealed a picture of mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
The lesion was then reconstructed with extended resection and D-P Rap.
