Abstract

Introduction: Sialadenoma papilliferum (SP) is a rare benign tumor, which originates from the minor salivary gland. It occurs at sites that have minor salivary glands, such as the palate, retromolar pads, buccal mucosa, and lips. The most common location for tumor development is on the hard palate. A differential diagnosis consists of ruling out other salivary gland tumors. Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) is a new technology used in head and neck surgery within certain centers around the world. Case Report: Herein, we present the first successful case of SP tumor removal by TORS. Conclusion: This particular case highlights the identification of this rare tumor in an unusual location. Furthermore, it demonstrates the utilization of TORS, leveraging the superior visualization to obtain excellent local control with minimal acute and long-term morbidity, in comparison to conventional transoral surgical approaches.
