Tumours of the sal­i­vary ­glands rep­re­sent 3% of all ­head and ­neck ­tumours. ­Those ­that ­come ­from ­minor sal­i­vary ­glands are ­about 10-15% of ­this ­group. ­Basal-­cell aden­o­ma is an uncom­mon his­to­log­i­cal ­type, usu­al­ly locat­ed in the parot­id ­gland, ­minor sal­i­vary ­glands of the ­upper lip and, ­less fre­quent­ly, in the pal­ate. A ­case of ­basal-­cell aden­o­ma, locat­ed in the ­minor sal­i­vary ­glands of the pal­ate, ­with clin­i­cal ­aspects sug­gest­ing a malig­nant ­lesion, is pre­sent­ed. The rel­a­tive rar­ity of the clin­i­cal ­aspect, the pecu­liar­ity of the dif­fe­ren­tial diag­no­sis and the sur­gi­cal treat­ment are ­described.
