Pleomorphic adenoma, the most common benign tumor of major salivary glands, may rarely present outside the salivary glands. However, it is extremely rare for these tumors to occur in auricle. We present a case of 40-year-old female with chief complaints of swelling in right pinna in tragal region for 3 years duration with a progressive course. Following inconclusive fine-needle aspiration cytology, excision of the mass was done under local anesthesia. Histopathology report was suggestive of pleomorphic adenoma.
