Abstract
Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is a benign tumor which usually originates from major and minor salivary glands. This tumor arising outside submandibular gland (SMG) is extremely rare. To author’s knowledge, only four cases have been reported so far in English literature. Its pathogenesis is still unclear, but it can be explained by embryologic theory of major salivary gland. A 68-year-old man with an incidental mass on left upper lateral neck visited to our clinic. The radiologic findings showed well-margined round mass outside left SMG. The excisional biopsy revealed a pleomorphic adenoma. We report the rare and unique case with a brief literature review.
Key Words: Extra-submandibular gland, Pleomorphic adenoma
