Kuttner tumor is a rare tumor like lesion of the salivary gland characterized by chronic inflammatory disease of the submandibular salivary gland. It is under diagnosed entity since 1896, when Kuttner reported four cases of chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (Kuttner's tumor) for the first time. Diagnosis of chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is made only on histopathology; hence it is challenging entity for the clinician as well as for the pathologist in view of its presentation as hard palpable mass and mimics of malignant neoplasm. We report case of 35-yrs- old male presented with left submandibular Kuttner tumor. The aim of the case report is to highlight the role of histopathology in early diagnosis and stress on this rare, under diagnosed tumor mimic.
