Basal cell adenoma, previously was termed by few authors as Monomorphic adenoma. The term “Monomorphic adenoma” was originally proposed for any benign epithelial salivary gland tumour other than benign mixed tumors. Monomorphic adenoma included tumours such as Warthins tumour, basal cell adenoma and canalicular adenoma. However, in the new 2005 WHO classification of salivary gland tumours the term “monomorphic adenoma” is not included and basal cell adenoma is considered as a separate entity. This paper intends to discuss the controversies regarding the terminology and classification of monomorphic adenoma along with diagnosis and differentiation of basal cell adenoma from other tumours.
