Bottom Line: Plemorphic adenoma is a frequent benign tumor of the major salivary glands.It could also develop from accessory salivary glands.The final diagnosis was based on histological confirmation.

ABSTRACT
Plemorphic adenoma is a frequent benign tumor of the major salivary glands. It could also develop from accessory salivary glands. We are reporting an extremely rare case of pleomorphic adenoma developing from the infratemporal space. The final diagnosis was based on histological confirmation. The treatment was mainly a complete resection via an anterior transmaxillary approach. Diagnosis, clinical behaviour, and treatment of pleomorphic adenoma of the infra-temporal space are reviewed from the literature.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: A computed tomography scan without administration of IV contrast revealed a moderate sized and well-limited isodense ovalar lesion (33 × 18 mm) in the right infratemporal space, indenting upon the posterolateral wall of the right maxillary antrum. There was no destruction of adjacent bone structures. Lateral nasal wall, nasal turbinates, nasopharynx, orbits, parotid glands, submandibular glands, and sinuses were all normal (Figure 2). MRI was not performed because of patient's financial constraints.
