Minor salivary gland tumors are infrequent, accounting for 10–15% of all salivary neoplasms. The most common intraoral site is palate, accounting for more than 50% of cases followed by lips, cheek mucosa, tongue, and floor of the mouth. Despite their relatively low frequency, minor salivary gland neoplasms represent a heterogeneous group of lesions, with a broad range of histological types and growth patterns imposing a diagnostic dilemma for the clinicians. Here we are reporting four cases of minor salivary gland neoplasms, all presented as palatal swellings of similar characteristics, and a review of literature is done for the same.
