Abstract:

Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) of the tongue is extremely rare, with incidence ranging from 0% to 2.5% of tumors originating from minor salivary glands. PA of the tongue is commonly seen in the posterior, followed by anterior, and rarely in the lateral side of the tongue. We report a rare case of voluminous pleomorphic adenoma of the right side of the tongue in a 58 years old female patient.
