Salivary gland carcinomas have clinical divergence with complicated overlapping histological patterns; Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma (MEC) being the most common among them. It accounts for about 5-10 % of all salivary gland tumors and 35.9% of all minor salivary gland neoplasms. Rarely these tumors occur in children and young adolescents. Clear Cells predominant MEC (cMEC) is a unique variant which is often difficult to distinguish from other clear cell tumors. We hereby report a rare case of Clear Cell variant of MEC involving palate in a 13-years-old female.
