Mucoepidermoid lung tumours are uncommon neoplasms comprising of 0.2% of all the lung tumours and historically included under the term bronchial adenomas.1 This is a case report of a bronchial tumour in the hilar region present since 3 years. The neoplasm could be easily classified as a mucoepidermoid tumour of low malignant potential, as it resembled the histologically identical lesion in the main salivary glands. The case is reported for its rarity and for the histological evaluation of the malignant potential in an apparently clinically benign neoplasm.
