AbstractPrimary cutaneous mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is a rare disease entity. Only around 20 cases have been reported so far. Herein, we present two cases for better understanding of the condition: A 74-year-old lady with a low-grade primary cutaneous MEC at her right external auditory ear canal was treated with surgical resection and adjuvant radiotherapy. The patient developed recurrence five months later and succumbed. Another 81-year-old lady with a high-grade primary cutaneous MEC carcinoma on her left parietal scalp treated by excisional biopsy remained disease free for 10 years. Their histological slides were discussed in details. Current evidence in the literature was also reviewed and summarized.
