Polymorphous Low Grade Adenocarcinoma (PLGA) is difficult to diagnose both clinically and histopathologically due to its indolent presentation and its morphological diversity, that includes several microscopic patterns. PLGA is a relatively newer entity under the sub-classification of adenocarcinoma, which arises from the minor salivary glands. It is an uncommon malignant neoplasm with low aggressiveness. We are reporting this case of PLGA which arose from the minor salivary gland over the right buccal mucosa with a nodular ulcerated swelling which was clinically suspected as pyogenic granuloma.
