Abstract: The pleomorphic adenoma otherwise called as benign mixed tumor, is the most common salivary neoplasm.1 It accounts for 53% to 77% of parotid tumors, 44% to 68% of submandibular tumours and 33% to 43% of minor gland tumors.2 Pleomorphic adenomas are derived from a mixture of ductal and myoepithelial elements.2,3 The terms pleomorphic adenoma and mixed tumor both represent attempts to describe the tumor’s unusal histopathologic features, neither term is entirely accurate.4 The tumor often has a prominent mesenchyme appearing stromal component; it is not truly a mixed neoplasm that is derived from more than one germ layer.1,4 This paper describes a case of pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary gland in palate of a middle aged male patient who was treated with wide surgical excision showing no evidence of recurrence 2 years post operative follow up.
