An unusual lesion associated with obstruction of ectopic sebaceous glands of the retromolar mucosa is presented. Histologically, this was associated with mucus-producing and respiratory metaplasia of the sebaceous ducts that also demonstrated microcyst formation. Sebaceous glands were hyperplastic. A review of the literature did not reveal a similar published example.
