Oncocytic papillary cystadenoma (OPC) in the major salivary glands is extremely rare. We report three cases of these cystadenomas arising in major salivary glands, with varied cytologic features. Case 1: A 38-year-old man presented with a right parotid gland mass that showed papillary clusters of oncocytic cells on cytologic examination. Case 2: An 84-year-old man presented with a left parotid gland mass. Cytology revealed an acellular smear. Case 3: A 57-year-old man presented with a mass in the right submandibular gland. Cytology revealed irregular sheets of epithelial cells. Histologic diagnoses of OPC were made for all three cases.
