This study analyzed the incidence and distribution of salivary gland lesions over a period of 5 years from the specimen submitted to the pathology department of Tirunelveli Medical College during the period between 2006 to 2010. Distribution of lesions recorded were neoplasm 78.75%, sialadenitis 20% and sialolithasis 1.25%. Lesions occurred from 10 years to 80 years of age with the mean age of 41.19. There is predominance of lesions in females than males was seen. Parotid gland was mostly affected followed by submandibular gland. Tumour was recorded from 10 to 80 years of age and 76.19% of tumours occurred at the age group of 20 to 60 years. Most of the benign tumour was seen in the second and third decades while malignant was in fifth decade of life. Females were mostly affected then males. Most tumours were in the parotid gland followed by submandibular gland. Most common benign tumour was pleomorphic adenoma while malignant tumour was mucoepidermoid carcinoma and acinic cell carcinoma. Sialadenitis was most common non neoplastic lesion and seen between 15 to 56 years of age. It was seen mostly in females then males. Submandibular gland was mostly affected followed by parotid gland. Analysis of the lesions showed statistically significant difference in age, sex, site distribution except submandibular sialadenitis and age distribution of malignant tumour.
