Lymphadenoma affects children and adults and presents at a mean age of approximately 65 years. Women and men are involved with similar frequency. The majority of cases involve the parotid gland, presenting as a single mass. Lymphadenoma is well-circumscribed, comprised of multiple cell types (ductal and basal), and arranged in nests and anastomosing cords within reactive lymphoid tissue. Sebaceous cells may or may not be present (sebaceous and non-sebaceous) (Figs. 15.1, 15.2, 15.3, 15.4, 15.5, 15.6, 15.7, 15.8, 15.9, 15.10, 15.11, 15.12, 15.13, 15.14, 15.15 and 15.16).
