Sebaceous carcinoma is a rare tumor, from the adnexal epithélium of the sebaceous glands. Usually, lesions arise in meibonian glands of the eyelid. However, extraocular lesions within head and neck have been reported. We report a case of recurrent sebaceous carcinoma of the parotid gland without metastases.
