Lymphoepithelial cysts are benign, slowly growing unilocular or multilocular lesions that may appear in the head and neck. Among the reported head and neck sites are the salivary glands (typically the parotid gland) and the oral cavity (usually the floor of the mouth). These cysts are usually seen in adults and only occasionally in children. They range in size from 0.5 to 5.0 cm, and they can cause considerable cosmetic deformity and physical discomfort.
