Patient Data

Age: 30 years

Left submandibular gland shows presence of a well defined hypoechoic lesion with posterior acoustic enhancement and internal vascularity without calcifications in its superficial lobe consistent with a pleomorphic adenoma.

Case Discussion

Biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma.

Warthin tumor and mucoepidermoid carcinoma are important differentials.
