Central mucoepidermoid carcinoma is very rare constituting 2–4% of all mucoepidermoid carcinomas. Its location in the maxilla is even rarer. The occurrence of this common tumor at the rare site poses a diagnostic challenge to the clinicians and pathologists. Here we report one such rare interesting case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma in a 30 year old female developing in the maxilla with involvement of adjacent vital structures.
