Abstract

Salivary gland tumors are rare, comprising less than 3% of all neoplasia of head and neck region. Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common type of all salivary gland tumors. It exhibits wide cyto-morphologic and architectural diversity and that is how it is considered to mixed tumor. Due to few symptoms and extension into a hidden site, the tumor can grow for a long time before being diagnosed, and the potential risk for malignant transformation increases over the years with the incidence of 1-7%. Hereby, we report a case of pleomorphic adenoma in a 46 year-old male who complained of a large growth on the left side of the face, which enlarged gradually over a period of over 10 years. Advanced imaging modality was used to determine the exact location and extent of the tumor so as to carry out its complete resection for a favourable outcome.
