Sclerosing polycystic adenosis (SPA) is an uncommon entity occurring in the salivary glands, with majority of the cases reported in major salivary glands reminiscent of fibrocystic disease of the breast. SPA arising in minor salivary glands of the oral cavity constitutes an exceedingly rare phenomenon. Here, we report a case of SPA that presented as a solitary, submucosal mass on the left lower labial mucosa in a 19-year-old male. The pathology features and a clinicopathologic diagnostic approach highlighting key features are discussed here. Similar cases published in the English literature are reviewed.
