Lymphoepithelial carcinoma of the parotid is a rare and little known tumour. The ethnic origin of the patients and the association with the Epstein-Barr virus are recognized but not invariable. The mechanism of the carcinogenesis thus remains an enigma. The authors report the observation of a patient which is remarkable because of his European origin and the positivity of serologies to the Epstein-Barr virus, and discuss the features of the lesion through the literature.
