Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is the most common benign tumor affecting the major salivary glands, though infrequently it may arise from the minor salivary glands as well. Majority of tumors affecting the minor salivary gland are malignant. We report a rare case of minor salivary gland PA of the hard palate in a 40-year-old female patient who presented with painless swelling in the palatal region for 2 years affecting swallowing and deglutition. A brief review of literature is also presented here.
