Salivary gland tumors comprise of less than 3% of all tumors of the head and neck region. Pleomorphic adenoma represents 45 to 74% of all these salivary gland tumors and 65% of them occur in the parotid gland. Owing to the close proximity of this tumor to the facial nerve, there have been various techniques for surgical management of this tumor in the literature. Extracapsular dissection of pleomorphic adenoma is a conservative treatment modality which spares the handling of facial nerve. We are reporting a case of extracapsular dissection of pleomorphic adenoma in the lower pole of the superfi cial lobe of the parotid gland in a 22 year-old Indian male with a 1-year follow-up.
