Canalicular adenoma is a rare benign salivary gland tumor that occurs almost exclusively in the upper lip. Rarely, this benign tumor may occur multifocally in the oral cavity. We report a case of canalicular adenoma in bilateral parotid glands, discuss histological characteristics, and review this tumor.
