Abstract:   (104 Views)
Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common salivary gland tumor. This tumor mostly involves the parotid gland; however, if it occurs in the minor salivary glands, the palate would be the most common site. This lesion is more prevalent in patients with 40 to 60 years of age. Regarding the literature, the incidence of giant pleomorphic adenoma of the palate in young patients is considered a rare finding. Hereby, we present a rare case of pleomorphic adenoma of the palate, with an astonishing size, found in a 27-year-old patient. Furthermore, the surgical treatment of this lesion is described. This case was effectively treated with surgical curettage and tumor resection, emphasizing the significance of early detection in order to minimize complications. Surgical treatment, was beneficial to help the patient resume to normal life. Additionally, the clinical, radiological, and histopathological aspects and potential surgical treatments are discussed.
