Ankit D. Mahuvakar | Shaikh Mohsin Ahmed | Atish B. Gujarathi | V. K. Ambulgekar

Abstract: Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common benign tumour of the major salivary glands. They also arise from minor salivary glands located on hard and soft palate. Ectopic occurrence of pleomorphic adenoma is seen in pharynx, trachea, and larynx and very rarely on nasal septum [1, 2]. There are many differences in the histology of major salivary gland tumours and ectopic minor salivary gland tumours. Hence diagnosis becomes a dilemma. These tumours are known to recur. We present a case of recurrent nasal septal pleomorphic adenoma which was treated with wide local excision and with Rintala's flap

Keywords: Pleomorphic adenoma, Nasal septum, Rintala's flap
