Polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) of the parotid gland is rare. We describe a new case in which the patient underwent parotidectomy only to experience an extensive recurrence 2 years later. The recurrence was treated with radical surgical excision and radiation therapy, and the patient remained disease-free at 5 years of follow-up. We also review the literature on primary parotid PLGA.
