Abstract

Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common neoplasm of the salivary glands with an incidence of 45% to 60% [1]. The recommended treatment for the pleomorphic adenoma is surgery. The recurrence of pleomorphic adenoma is uncommon and recurrence rates depend on the initial surgery. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is the imaging study of choice for recurrence. Management of recurrence is challenging and there is no standardized treatment. It must be selected for every patient and there is a high probability of needing multiple treatment procedures. We present the case of a 54 year old patient with a history of a parotid tumor resection in 2016 that concurres to the Head and Neck Surgery office with a recurrent left parotid mass. A left parotidectomy and left jugular-carotid lymphadenectomy is performed in which the pathology reports recurrence of pleomorphic adenoma.
