Salivary gland tumors are a relatively rare and morphologically diverse group of lesions. Pleomorphic adenoma is a benign tumor of the salivary gland that consists of a combination of epithelial and mesenchymal elements. The tumor most commonly arises from the parotid (60-70%) or submandibular glands. It develops less frequently in a minor salivary gland, presenting as an intraoral mass dependent on the palate- Pleomorphic adenoma rarely causes bony erosion or destruction. Here, we present a case of benign pleomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary gland originating on the palate causing bony erosion of the alveolar ridge- The clinical, radiological, computed tomographical and histopathological aspects are discussed.
