Juvenile pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary glands comprises less than 5% of salivary gland tumors occurring in children and adolescents. The incidence of juvenile pleomorphic adenoma in minor salivary gland is even rarer. We intend to report an unusual case of pleomorphic adenoma of palate in 14-year-old female patient with associated mucous retention cyst of same side and highlight role of imaging in diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma.
Clinical Implication: Intraoral pleomorphic adenoma is a slow growing painless mass thus patient seek medical attention late. Majority of minor salivary gland tumors arising in palate can be malignant hence diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma should be confirmed.
