Sialoblastomas are very rare epithelial tumors of salivary gland that usually occur in parotid or submandibular gland. Most of the sialoblastomas present in the neonatal period or early childhood. The biological behavior of these tumors is variable because of the potential for local and systemic recurrences. Only ten cases have been reported in submandibular gland so far. We report a case of newborn female child who presented with a left submandibular swelling.
