Salivary gland neoplasms are rare in the pediatric
age group. Pleomorphic adenomas in the submandibular
gland are rarer. In this article, we present a
seven-year-old female with a slowly growing mass in
her right submandibular area. The firm, mobile and
painless mass was about 2x3 cm in size and with
bimanual palpation it was indiscriminated from the
submandibular gland. Magnetic resonance imaging
with contrast revealed a heterogeneous and
minimally lobulated mass within the submandibular
gland with clearly defined borders. Fine needle aspiration
biopsy revealed a diagnosis of pleomorphic
adenoma and we performed right submandibular
gland excision under general anesthesia. The histopathological
diagnosis was pleomorphic adenoma
with sparse mitotic figures that may be interpreted as
having a potential of malignant transformation. This
patient who was followed up for one year without any
complication is to our knowledge the youngest case
cited in the English-language literature.
