We report a case of sialadenoma papilliferum arising in the adenoids in a 2-year-old child. The tumor demonstrated papillary and adenomatous proliferations, suggestive of minor salivary gland origin. A review of the literature indicated no reported cases of this neoplasm arising in individuals this young. The location of the growth also appears to be unique. Regular follow-up by endoscopy and computed tomographic scan of the nasopharyngeal area have not revealed recurrence of disease one year after resection.
