Introduction: Pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary glands of the hard palate is a rare benign tumor that has elements of both epithelial and mesenchymal tissues. It usually presents as slow-growing painless submucosal mass on the hard palate. Diagnosis rests on clinical features and tissue examination with radiological investigations helping in surgical planning. Aim and objective: To add to the literature few more cases of this relatively rare condition and discuss its clinical presentation and management. Case description: Here, we present a case series of three patients who presented with a mass over the hard palate that was subsequently diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma and discuss the treatment of the same. Conclusion: Treatment of choice is wide local excision with removal of periosteum or bone if involved. Recurrence rate is low.
