It is a rare lesion of salivary glands predominantly affecting the minor glands. It has characteristic exophytic and endophytic clinical growth pattern. Histopathologically, it is characterized by papillary projections supported by fibrovascular connective tissue core and infiltrated with mixed inflammatory cells.
