Pleomorphic adenoma of palate in an edentate patient is a rare entity. Accurate clinical examination, imaging modalities and histopathological examination are needed for early diagnosis and management. The late diagnosis may result in difficulty in speech and swallow, problems in denture fabrication, resorption of bone and may result in complicated treatment procedures. Here, we discuss the case of the edentulous patient with undiagnosed palatal swelling, causing difficulty in denture fabrication. A multidisciplinary approach should always be followed involving oral and maxillofacial physician, radiologist, surgeon and prosthodontist in managing such palatal pathology.
