Sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma is an unusual type of mucoepidermoid carcinoma with special histological features which differ from those of the classic type of mucoepidermoid carcinoma. We report the case of a 32-year-old male, who reported to the Vydehi Institute of Dental Sciences, Bangalore, India, with an asymptomatic swelling over the right parotid region which had been present for the previous two and a half years. Histopathological sections of the tumour mass showed mucous and epidermoid cell nests in a dense, hyalinised, sclerotic stroma. A diagnosis of sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma was made. A superficial parotidectomy was performed on the patient and he has remained disease free to date.
