Kuttner’s tumour, also known as chronic sclerosing sialadenitis predominantly involves the submandibular gland. Though described more than a century ago, the entity remains under diagnosed and is commonly mistaken for carcinoma. The diagnosis is done by histopathological examination of excised salivary gland which reveals dense lympho-plasmacytic infiltration with acinar atrophy and periductal fibrosis. We present a case of Kuttner’s tumour in a 50 year old male patient to highlight its histopathological features and to increase the awareness about this under diagnosed entity.
