Abstract

Polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma is a slow growing tumor mainly arises in minor
salivary glands in oral cavity. The frequency of regional lymph node and distant metastasis are
very low in this tumor. Careful examination of histolopathological specimen is necessary as
features frequently overlap with that of pleomorphic adenoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma.
Local excision is the treatment of this condition. Recurrences and distant metastasis were
reported in literature many years after surgery. So, long term regular follow up is required in
this group of patients.
