Abstract

A 66-year-old woman underwent an excision of a recurrent pleomorphic adenoma in the left pterygo-maxillary region in 2015. A year later, a new locoregional recurrence objectivated with pulmonary metastases. The patient received a parotidectomy with conservation of the facial nerve and address for radiotherapy.

Discussion: Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common neoplasm of the salivary gland. It is usually a well-circumscribed and slow-growing benign tumor. In rare instances, benign pleomorphic adenomas may metastasize and spread to distant sites in which case they are described as metastasizing pleomorphic adenomas. So far, there has been no case report of metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma focusing on radiologic features of the tumor using several different imaging tools. Furthermore, only a few cases of pleomorphic adenoma with metastasis to pulmonary sites have been reported, which usually present as multiple lung nodules.
