Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is the most common tumor of the salivary glands. Approximately, 90% of these tumors occur in the parotid gland and 10% in the minor salivary glands. The buccal mucosa or cheek is a rarely affected site by PAs of the minor salivary glands. Herein, we report a case of PA of the cheek, presented with intraoral swelling, and conclude that complete surgical excision can be a curative treatment for this benign tumor with 5-year follow-up.
