Pleomorphic adenoma, though essentially benign can undergo malignant transformation. Here, a case of a female patient with a giant size tumor of parotid weighing 1.6 kgs has been presented. The tumor was diagnosed as carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma which showed breast and lung metastasis. The various parameters which can predict malignant transformation in Pleomorphic adenoma have also been discussed in this paper. The understanding of the underlying complications of Pleomorphic adenoma makes us better equipped in rendering optimal treatment to the patient.
