Salivary gland tumors are rare and carry diverse histologies. There is a paucity of clinical and biological details about pediatric salivary gland tumors and their clinical behavior in the literature. We present a case of 25-year-old female with giant pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid which started in her childhood at the age of 13 years. Presentation at such an early age is a rare entity. The patient underwent a superficial parotidectomy. Periodic follow-up was done for 1 year and there was no recurrence. For benign salivary gland tumor, surgical excision with preservation of neurovascular structure is the main treatment option.
