Clear cell tumours frequently pose a challenge to the pathologist since the classical morphological features of malignancy exemplified by cytological atypia are frequently absent in malignant clear cell variants, thereby excluding reliance on this histopathological hallmark for the establishment of a diagnosis. Epithelial myoepithelial carcinoma is a rare biphasic low-grade salivary gland malignancy with a prominent clear cell component. We report a case of epithelial myoepithelial carcinoma in the palate of 50-year-old male.
