Introduction: Canalicular adenoma (CA) is a benign tumor that develops in the accessory salivary glands. Observation: We reported a case of CA of the upper lip in a 61-year-old man. Discussion: The clinical diagnosis of CA is difficult, and a lot of possible differential diagnoses exist, including benign or malignant salivary tumors. Thus, the diagnosis may be challenging and must rely on histological examination findings. The treatment is surgical in nature and the prognosis is excellent.
Key words: salivary glands / salivary gland neoplasms / adenoma / lip
