© Copyright 2020 by Gazi University Medical Faculty.Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common type of benign tumors of salivary glands. Pleomorphic adenoma commonly arises from the parotid gland and could also be located in larynx, pharynx, trachea, and lips. Pleomorphic adenoma rarely occurs in nasopharynx and may present with nasal onstruction. In adult patients, it can be confused with nasopharynx cancers. The risk of recurrence and squamous metaplasia should be kept in mind. The gold standard treatment method is transnasal endoscopic total excision.
