A 48 years old male patient presented with a mass in the supratemporal quadrant of orbit. Fine needle aspiration (FNAC) revealed a cellular tumour with a chondrimyxoid background and epithelial cells intermingled with mesenchymal cells in a fibrillary matrix. A diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma of the lacrimal gland was made which was confirmed on histopathology. FNA is a rapid and accurate method in diagnosis of lacrimal gland tumours.
