Necrotizing sialometaplasia is a benign, self-limiting, reactive inflammatory disorder of the salivary tissue, which mimics malignancy both clinically and histopathologically. The etiology is unknown, although it most likely represents a local ischemic event, infectious process or perhaps an immune response to an unknown allergen. A case of necrotizing sialometaplasia of the palate in a 40-year-old male patient is presented. Histopathological examination is necessary for the diagnosis of necrotizing sialometaplasia because the clinical features of this condition can mimic other diseases, particularly malignant neoplasms.
