Kuttner tumor, also known as chronic sclerosing sialadenitis, was first described by Dr. H. Kuttner in 1896. It is an uncommon, chronic, benign tumor-like lesion predominantly involving the submandibular glands of middle-aged individuals, and presents as a firm, painful swelling. Histologically, it is characterized by progressive periductal sclerosis, acinar atrophy, and gland infiltration by lymphocytes. A case of Kuttner tumor involving the minor salivary glands is reported.
