Background: Adenomatoid hyperplasia of the mucous salivary glands is an uncommon clinicopathologic entity described by Giansanti et al in 1971. Methods: The reported case corresponds to a 47 year-old patient complaining of sublingual pain repeated crises. Results: Microscopic sections showed numerous salivary gland lobules with normal appearing mucinous acini within a fibrous connective tissue stroma. Conclusions: Adenomatoid hyperplasia of mucous salivary glands can not be clinically differentiated from salivary gland neoplasms. It is necessary that the lesion be excised and submitted for microscopic examination.
