Figure 1: (a) Inadequate cytology shows few cyst macrophages and cyst fluid; 10 × Pap smear. (b) Nonneoplastic cytology, Pap smear 10 × shows benign salivary acini and lymphocytes in the background. H and E 10 × of same case shows chronic sialadenitis. (c) Benign cytological category, Pap smear 10 × shows grayish blue matrix material and epithelial cells clusters. H and E 40 × shows chondromyxoid stroma with epithelial cell trabeculae. (d) Atypia of undetermined significance, Pap smear 40 × shows cyst macrophages and mucious material; this could be mucocoele or low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma, corresponding H and E 40 × shows low-grade Mucoepidermoid carcinoma
