Pleomorphic Adenoma (PA), a benign neoplasm of glandular origin most commonly involves major salivary glands. It is rare in minor salivary glands such as hard palate, upper lip and buccal mucosa, frequently affecting middle aged females. PA comprises diverse histopathologic features of epithelial, myoepithelial and mesenchymal components. Aberrant histopathologic features in Pleomorhic Adenoma thus calls for judicious discrimination from alike entities which facilitates appropriate surgical management. Here we present a case report of PA in upper lip in a 25 year old female patient showing uncommon findings like clear cells, squamous metaplasia and cribriform pattern.
