The myoepithelioma is a rare salivary gland tumor composed nearly exclusively of myoepithelial cells. A case occurring on the palate of a 22-year-old man is reported. Electron microscopic findings of occasional desmosomes, a basal lamina associated with the plasma memb;rane, and perinuclear cytoplasmic filaments confirmed the diagnosis. The myoepithelioma appears to resemble the pleomorphic adenoma clinically and may be a development variant of the pleomorphic adenoma.
