Abstract

Pleomorphic adenoma (PA), the most common of the benign salivary gland tumors, is an extremely rare entity in children before the age of 14 years. Until now, only five cases arising in the palate have been reported in detail. A case of PA of the hard palate in a 10-year-old girl is presented. After a 9-year follow-up period, no recurrence was observed.
