Sebaceous lymphadenoma is a benign rare tumor of the salivary gland. It typically presents in the 6th decade of life as a slowly growing parotid mass. Pathologic examination reveals a well circumscribed mass composed of epithelial islands set in a lymphoid background. The epithelial nests are composed of sebaceous cells and ductal structures. Surgical excision is curative. Prognosis is good with rare recurrence or malignant transformation. Currently, there are less than 50 reported cases in the English literature. We report the second case of sebaceous lymphadenoma in the pediatric population and the youngest reported so far that presented in a 13 year old girl with a parotid mass.
