Tucci E., Santilli F., Galli M.

The benign mixed tumor (pleomorphic adenoma) is the most common intraoral salivary gland tumor: more than 50% occurs on the hard and soft palate. The epidemiological data, histopathological and clinical features, preoperative diagnostic methodologies, treatment options , recurrence rates and prediction published in the literature for this neoplasm are discussed. A case of minor salivary gland tumor of the palate in a 26 year old man is reported. The therapy chosen was a surgical conservative enucleation of the lesion. Histological examination showed pleomorphic adenoma; there is no recurrence after 2 years.
