Myoepithelioma, adenomas consisting only of myoepithelial cels, are very rare tumors that comprise 1% or less of salivary neoplasms. Myoepithelioma resembles pleomorphic adenomas in its appearance and growth pattern but is more aggressive than pleomorphic adenoma. Myoepithelioma rarely transforms into malignant myoepithelioma like pleomorphic adenoma. We report a case of myoepithelioma with low malignant potential of the minor salivary gland in chek and acessory parotid gland on its more frequent mitotic features than the first and second recurent tumor.
