Abstract

We report a case of histology-proven pleomorphic adenoma of the parapharyngeal space in a 20-year-old man. This case was unusual in that a massive amount of dystrophic calcification was scattered throughout the tumor. The patient underwent successful surgical resection, and he exhibited no signs of recurrence during follow-up. Literature about such an unusual presentation is scarce.
