Pleomorphic adenoma, by its name is known for its histological diversity. Some of the various histological patterns seen are represented as follows:

  • Capsular invasion (Pseudo capsule). [Figure 1]
  • Ductal structures surrounded by myoepithelial cells and with or without intraductal mucin production. [Figure 2] and [Figure 3]
  • Myxoid areas with seperation of the stellate shaped myoepithelial cells [Figure 4]
  • Areas of osseous [Figure 5], and cartilagenous differentiation [Figure 6]
  • Sqamous differentiation with formation of keratin pearls [Figure 7]
  • Interconnecting thin strands of myoepithelial cells [Figure 8]
  • Highly cellular areas without ductal differentiation [Figure 9],[Figure 10]
  • Interconnecting strands of myoepithelial cells with hyalinization mimicking neurilemmoma [Figure 11]
  • Acantholytic areas [Figure 12]
