Abstract Clear-cell lesions of the parotid gland are uncommon but when studied by fine-needle aspiration may result in a clinically important but cytologically difficult differential diagnosis. Clear-cell lesions involving the parotid include acinic cell neoplasm, clear cell oncocytoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, primary clear-cell carcinoma, epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma, and metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Accurate diagnosis is achieved by assessment of nuclear features, other cell populations present, and clinical data including radiographic studies.
