Lesions of the salivary glands present an interesting subject matter because of their great histologic
diversification. This study was carried out to study the histopathological spectrum of salivary gland lesions
and to know their pattern of distribution. The study was done with available data from January 2015 to
December 2017 in the Dept. of Pathology, Govt. medical college, Kota.
Aims and Objectives: Out of a total of 138 cases, 75(54%) were neoplastic and 63(46%) were non
neoplastic. Male predominence was observed with a M: F ratio of 1.5:1. The mean age observed was 46.7
years in a age range of 12 to 75 years. Benign tumors outnumbered the malignant ones. Parotid gland was
the most common site of tumors (73.5%) and Pleomorphic adenoma was the commonest tumor observed in
both sexes. Muco-epidermoid carcinoma was the most common malignant salivary gland tumor, followed
by adenoid cystic carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Owing to the complex features exhibited by
salivary gland lesions histopathological examination is the mainstay for diagnosis and categorization.

Keywords: Histopathology, Salivary gland, Pleomorphic adenoma, Mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
