Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Pleomorphic adenomas of the small salivary glands are very rare and usually arise from the hard palate.

CASE REPORT:

We present a female patient who was referred to our Department because of a bleeding enoral tumor, which persisted for 35 years. Histopathological examination after complete tumor excision showed a pleomorphic adenoma.

CONCLUSION:

Pleomorphic adenomas are an important differential diagnosis for tumors of the hard palatine. The therapy of choice is surgical excision.
