Abstract

Mixed parotid tumour of the nose is uncommon, Salivary gland tumours develop near or within the parotid gland nearly twenty times as often as they do in the submandibular gland. About 40% of all minor salivary tumours arise in the hard palate, 20% each in oral cavity and maxillary antrum, 10% in oropharynx and rest 10% are in upper respiratory tract. The average age of the patients with salivary tumours is 45 years, but the age range is wide, extending from childhood to adulthood and even over 80 years. Most series show a preponderance of females, especially if only tumours of the parotid glands are considered.
