OSTROSKY, A.; VILLA, D.M.; GONZALEZ, M.  and  KLURFAN, F.. Benign myoepithelioma: presentation of a case report. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.5, pp.336-341. ISSN 2173-9161.

We present a case of benign myoepithelioma of the parotid gland, which was treated by superficial gland lobectomy along with facial nerve conservation. A differential diagnosis with other benign tumors with similar clinical signs such as pleomorphic adenoma is made. The importance of a correct anatomopathologic diagnosis is also stressed, as is making a differential diagnosis with epi-myoepithelial carcinomas.

Keywords : Benign myoepithelioma; Parotid tumors.
