Abstract: 80-90% of tumours of the parotid gland are benign, the most common being pleomorphic adenoma. It is characterized principally by epithelial and myoepithelial components distributed in varied patterns through an abundant matrix of mucoid, and chondroid supporting tissue. Classically it presents as swelling in front, below and behind ear, Raises ear lobule and Retro mandibular groove is obliterated. Here we present a case of a swelling over left side of neck over submandibular triangle near the angle of the mandible. The case is presented as clinical presentation of pleomorphic Adenoma was not classical.
