    Abstract

    We describe a case that initially presented to the oncology unit as what seemed like a soft tissue sarcoma arising from the thigh. Biopsy of this mass showed that it was a mucoepidermoid carcinoma. This is a very rare presentation of a non-salivary gland primary mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
