Myoepitheliomas of the parotid glands are very rare in the pediatric population. Only a few cases of myoepitheliomas of the salivary glands have been reported in children. They have some similar features with pleomorphic adenoma. However, they may be malignant and infiltrate locally. Hence, histopathologic examination should be considered to differentiate these tumors. The treatment of myoepitheliomas is complete removal of the tumor. We report a child with myoepithelioma of the parotid gland and review the related literature.
