A clin­i­cal ­case of ple­o­mor­phic aden­o­ma of ­the ret­ro­mo­lar ­trigone is ­described. The char­ac­ter­is­tics of ­the ­tumour ­and ­the fre­quen­cy of expres­sion in dif­fer­ent are­as of ­the ­oral cav­ity ­are ana­lysed. Data avail­able in ­the lit­er­a­ture ­are eval­u­at­ed ­and com­pared ­with ­those ­from ­our expe­ri­ence at ­the Oral ­and Maxillofacial Surgery Institute, University of Naples II. Analysis ­and com­par­i­son of clin­i­cal cas­es con­firms ­the rar­ity of ­the loca­tion of ­the ­tumour in ­the ret­ro­mo­lar ­trigone. Early diag­no­sis con­firmed by his­to­log­i­cal exam­ina­tion, ­and ade­quate sur­gi­cal treat­ment fol­lowed by care­ful fol­low-up, ­are ­the essen­tial prin­ci­ples ­for treat­ing ­this ­type of dis­ease, in par­tic­u­lar ­when it ­involves ­the ­minor sal­i­vary ­glands, to ­reduce ­the ­risk of ­relapse ­and of metas­ta­ses to a min­i­mum.
