Pleomorphic adenoma is a mixed tumor of salivary gland origin presenting frequently in major salivary glands and sporadically in minor salivary glands. It is a benign tumor with both epithelial and mesenchymal tissues. Salivary glands in general may present with a diverse range of lesions posing a challenge to even the most experienced clinician. Resection with surrounding dispensable normal tissues is the key to successful management of such tumors. This case report illustrates an enormous pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary gland in the hard palate of 10 years duration.
