Benign lymphoepithelial cysts are slow growing tumours commonly seen in HIV positive adults. It is rare to find them in non HIV individuals. In this article we discuss an uncommon presentation of a parotid swelling occurring in a 49-year-old non HIV male, which was diagnosed as benign lymphoepithelial cyst. The various investigative modalities and treatment options are outlined in this article.
