Inflammatory pseudotumor also known as plasma cell granuloma is a space occupying lesion which occurs in wide variety of somatic tissue and visceral organs, including lungs, liver, thyroid and many other organs. Recently, it has been described in the major salivary glands and buccal tissue in children.1 We have described here the clinical, radiological and histological findings of inflammatory pseudotumor in premaxillary subcutaneous tissue in an adult, which is a rare site.
