  • in 1895, Volkmann described mucoepidermoid carcinoma as the most common malignant epithelial tumour of the salivary glands.[1]
  • In 1924, mucoepidermoid carcinoma was described by Mason and Berger.[2]
  • In 1945, Stewart and his associates, recognized mucoepidermoid of the salivary gland as a separate neoplasm and described its histopathology.[2]
  • In 1958, Beahrs and Adson first described the surgical technique for parotid surgery.
