Lacrimal gland pleomorphic adenoma, accounts for more than half of the epithelial forms of lacrimal gland tumours. The commonest age group affected is the fifth decade. We report this tumour in a teenaged girl which is an unusual age group to present with this tumour. To conclude lacrimal gland lesions of slow growing nature with well-defined border and those which have an intact capsule observed per operatively should be excised intact to prevent malignant transformation and recurrence. The typical location and radiological findings of pleomorphic adenoma renders itself to easy detection and such presentation even in a young patient should not mislead the treating surgeon to plan an incision biopsy.

Keywords: Pleomorphic adenoma, Young patient.
