Abstract

Lipomatosis has not previously been reported in minor salivary glands. Its occurrence in the parotid gland is well recognized. We present the first reported case of lipomatosis of the minor salivary glands in the nasal cavity. We also review the tumours of the minor salivary glands, lipomas and lipomatosis of the parotid, and the few reported cases of lipomas of the sinonasal tract.
