Myoepithelioma is an extremely rare subtype of salivary gland tumors, and its diagnosis is made on a wide variation of cellular morphology. Though benign, it has a tendency for local metastasis and has a low recurrence rate. Its diagnosis can be challenging due to its poorly characterized clinical, histological, and immunochemical behavior. Here, we present a rare presentation of this tumor in the lateral pharyngeal wall.
