The benign mixed tumor (pleomorphic adenoma) is the most common intraoral salivary gland tumor: more than 50% occurs on the hard and soft palate. The epidemiological data, histopathological and clinical features, preoperative diagnostic methodologies, treatment options, recurrence rates and prediction published in the literature for this neoplasm are discussed. A case of minor salivary gland tumor of the palate in a 26 year old man is reported. The therapy chosen was a surgical conservative enucleation of the lesion.

Abstract

The benign mixed tumor (pleomorphic adenoma) is the most common intraoral salivary gland tumor: more than 50% occurs on the hard and soft palate. The epidemiological data, histopathological and clinical features, preoperative diagnostic methodologies, treatment options, recurrence rates and prediction published in the literature for this neoplasm are discussed. A case of minor salivary gland tumor of the palate in a 26 year old man is reported. The therapy chosen was a surgical conservative enucleation of the lesion. Histological examination showed pleomorphic adenoma; there is no recurrence after 2 years.
