Basal cell adenoma (BCA) is an uncommon benign epithelial neoplasm of salivary gland consisting of 1%–2% of all salivary gland epithelial tumors. Frequently, these tumors occur in major salivary glands, mostly in the parotid gland. These tumors rarely occur in minor salivary gland. We report a case of BCA in a 54-year-old male patient having a growth in the left upper gingivobuccal sulcus at maxillary tuberosity region with respect to 27 and 28, which was clinically presented as irritation fibroma and was histologically diagnosed as BCA. The dilemma in diagnosis of this rare lesion, histologic paradox, and insufficient descriptive studies has directed us to present this case to serve as a guide for clinicians for proper clinicopathological and radiological analysis of such lesions.
