SALIVARY GLAND - Pleomorphic adenoma

The salivary gland tissue is compressed and distorted by a circumscribed sharply defined pale nodule in which some small white areas can be seen.
This man presented at the age of 54 with a slowly enlarging lesion in a submandibular gland. The histology of the lesion is that of a simple adenoma in which there are areas of cartilage-like material.
