Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common primary salivary gland neoplasm frequently affecting the parotid gland. We report a case of MEC in a 24-year-old male in the retromolar area, which on initial examination gave impression of an innocuous-appearing traumatic ulcer but on histopathological examination turned out be an aggressive MEC. This article also shows the role of traditional therapy with Ayurveda in the management of this case. However, there are no previous scientific evidences in literature for treatment with such type of therapy.
