Benign lymphoepithelial parotid lesions (BLL) are intraparotid pathological changes that are commmonly thought to be an early manifestation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. It is not well known whether BLL may undergo malignant transformation into B cell lymhoma and may therefore be a sort of precancerous lesion. We report 3 cases of possible malignant transformation of BLL in HIV-infected patients.
