Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma is a very rare malignant tumor arising in the salivary gland and mainly in the parotid gland. It is highly malignant but asymptomatic, painless and has space occupying lesion sometimes. The metastasis is common(70%) and the prognosis is relatively poor. Although there is no definite treatment modality, the combined surgical intervention and the postoperative radiation therapy has been recommended. We treated a case of carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma of the palate with local excision, skin graft and postoperative radiation therapy
