Pleomorphic adenoma is a benign mixed salivary gland tumor and consists of a combination of epithelial and mesenchymal elements. The parotid and other major salivary glands are the common locations for it. Pleomorphic adenoma less frequently originates from minor salivary glands with a malignant potential in most of the cases. The present case is a pleomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary gland of soft palate in a 72-year-old male, and the tumor is large, well circumscribed, firm but still benign in nature and needs reporting.
