Abstract

Accessory salivary gland tissue is well recognized and is found in 21 per cent of the population. Tumours of the accessory salivary tissue are rare and comprise only 1 per cent of all parotid gland tumours.

A pleomorphic adenoma of Stensen's duct is described. A circular constriction of this duct by the tumour with retention of saliva in the parotid gland was observed.
