Abstract

Sialoblastoma is a rare, congenital or perinatal tumour predominately affecting the parotid or submandibular salivary glands. We report a case of sialoblastoma arising in ectopic salivary gland tissue in the anterior cheek of a female infant. This lesion clinically and on ultrasound mimicked a haemangioma. Following imaging and tissue diagnosis, the lesion was surgically excised with clear margins. The patient remained disease free at 6 months follow up.
