Abstract Primary lymphoepithelial carcinoma of the parotid gland is a rare salivary gland tumour which is more common in women with an ethnic predilection. Association of Ebstein-Barr Virus with the tumour in endemic areas suggested a role of tumorigenesis in susceptible population. We report a case of 67-year-old woman who presented with a long standing, painless right parotid region swelling. The diagnosis of lymphoepithelial carcinoma of the parotid gland was made based on histopathological examination after parotidectomy and neck dissection. Metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma was ruled out by targeted biopsies of bilateral fossa of Rosenmuller. Surgical resection followed by postoperative radiotherapy was essential to achieve local control of disease.
