An interesting case of a 09 years old girl is reported who presented with a painless, mobile, spherical, fluctuant and brilliantly translucent swelling in front of left ear. The fine needle aspiration revealed turbid dark yellow colour fluid. This cystic swelling was completely excised and the specimen on histopathology was reported as low grade Mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Recovery was uneventful. This unusual presentation of Mucoepidermoid carcinoma as a preauricular cyst is one of the rare unique reported case.
