Background: Salivary gland tumours are rare neoplasm. The present study was conducted to assess salivary glands lesions histopathologically. Materials & Methods: The present study comprised of 112 salivary gland lesions seen in both genders. General information such as age, sex, anatomical location etc. was recorded. Results: Out of 112 cases, 50 were seen in males and 62 in females. Parotid gland involvement was seen in 70 cases, submandibular gland in 30 and minor salivary gland in 12. The difference was significant (p< 0.05). The most commonly seen parotid tumor was pleomorphic adenoma seen in 44 cases followed by Warthin tumors in 11 cases in submandibular gland and cysts in 5 cases of minor salivary gland. Conclusion: Most commonly lesions were seen in parotid gland and most common lesion was pleomorphic adenoma and there was female predominance.
