Necrotizing sialometaplasia is a rare inflammatory condition clinically and histologically resembling a malignant tumor. The lesion is usually present on the palatal mucosa, and heals up without treatment during a couple of months. Differential diagnosis is essential in order to avoid excessive therapy. We describe a case where an oral tumor was not a cancer after all.
