Pleomorphic adenoma is most common benign neoplasm of the major salivary glands that predominantly affects the superficial lobe of the parotid gland and rarely minor salivary glands. These tumors commonly occur in the fourth, fifth and sixth decades with increased predilection towards females and clinically manifests as unilateral, slow growing, firm and painless mass. Their occurrence on the tongue has been very rarely reported in the literature. This case report describes a rarest case of pleomorphic adenoma involving the right dorsolateral surface of tongue in a 28 year old male patient.
