Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is one of the most commonly seen benign tumors that affect salivary glands. Among the major salivary glands, it mostly affects the parotid, whereas in the hard palate it affects the minor salivary glands, which account for about 40–70% of all salivary tumors. This case report describes a case of an edentulous female who developed a mixed tumor in the minor salivary gland of the hard palate, which was successfully removed by surgical excision.
