Abstract

Objective:

We present the first reported case of sebaceous adenoma of the palate, to our knowledge.

Method:

Case report and review of the English language literature, with a focus on the pathological spectrum of sebaceous glands.

Case report:

A woman presented with a growth on the hard palate, which was excised and examined. Histopathological analysis showed features of sebaceous adenoma. Further evaluation with Sudan Black B special stains and Ki 67 immunohistochemistry was performed.

Conclusion:

Sebaceous adenomas in the oral cavity are very rare, with only 10 cases previously reported in the English language literature. Sebaceous adenoma of the palate has not previously been reported, to our knowledge. We discuss the role of special stains and immunohistochemistry in the diagnosis of this tumour.
