A case of pleomorphic adenoma in an 46 years old male, who presented with asymptomatic firm fluctuant swelling in right pre-auricular region. The lesion was examined clinical, histopat- hological and investigations were carried out. FNAC showed benign salivary gland elements consistent with pleomorphic adenoma.
