An insight into diagnostically challenging salivary gland malignancy with case report: Polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma

Abstract

Polymorphous low‐grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) is difficult to diagnose due to its indolent clinical presentation and due to its morphological diversity that includes several microscopic patterns. Distinguishing it from high‐grade tumors of salivary gland is important, as the management and prognosis of this tumor differ. We report a considerably rare case of PLGA in retromolar area highlighting various diagnostic challenges caused by the overlap of clinical and microscopic features between PLGA and other salivary gland neoplasms and discuss current management strategies.
