Polymorphous low grade Adenocarcinoma of Tongue Case Report

Polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) is a low grade malignant neoplasm that occurs almost exclusively in the minor salivary glands, primarily those in the palate. We report a case of PLGA that arose at the base of the tongue. The tumor was excised by diode laser with adjuvant radiotherapy. This case shows that PLGA, which has a variable morphologic appearance, can occur at rare sites like base of tongue other than the salivary glands of palate.
