Keywords:Benign tumor, minor salivary gland, oral cavity, palate, tongue
Pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary glands accounts for less than 3% of all head and neck tumors. It is a benign tumor. Palate is the most common site followed by upper lips. Tongue is an unusual site, and there are only 29 reported cases in literature as per our knowledge. We present a case of a 38-year-old female patient who presented with mass in the anterior tongue that was diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma and was treated by surgical excision.
