A case of pleomorphic adenoma of the lower turbinate salivary glands is presented. A careful review of the literature has revealed that this is a highly unusual site for such neoplasms. The scarcity of symptoms is underlined as the lesion can long go unrecognized. Moreover, it is pointed out that, since only a small number of cases have thus far been presented for this benign lesion the prognostic factors indicating a clinical evolution to malignancy are as yet unknown. For this reason the authors feel it advisable to perform conservative surgery and carry out a careful follow-up.
