Abstract

Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is the most common tumour of the salivary glands. About 90% of these tumours
occur in the parotid gland and ten % in the minor salivary glands. The most common sites of Pleomorphic
adenoma of the minor salivary glands are the palate, followed by lips and cheeks. Throat, floor of the
mouth, tongue, tonsil, pharynx, retro molar area and nasal cavity are rarely involved. Pleomorphic adenoma
typically present as a slow growing, unilateral and painless mass of salivary glands, with a predilection for
recurrence and risk of malignant transformation (about 1.5% up to five years and increases to 9.5% after
more than 15 years). This case report describes a case of Pleomorphic adenoma of buccal mucosa in a
13-year-old male patient.
