Epithelial myoepithelial carcinoma (EMC) of the parotid gland is difficult to differentiate from pleomorphic adenoma. EMC is a rare entity and there is not much information about this in literature. We review here the diagnosis, clinical behavior, and treatment of EMC .and in the same time , we recmmend to have early surgical excision if there is nodal metastasis on CAT scan and not to depend on FNAC only if it shows pleomorphic adenoma.
