Resumen

DANILLER, T; GOEDHALS, J  y  SEEDAT, R Y. Salivary gland anlage tumour - a rare cause of congenital nasal obstruction. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp. 31-33. ISSN 1994-3032.

Salivary gland anlage tumour, also known as congenital pleomorphic adenoma, is a rare salivary hamartoma that presents in the nasopharynx of neonates. It is important to distinguish this lesion from other causes of neonatal respiratory distress. Treatment usually involves simple excision, and recurrence is rare. No cases of malignant progression have been reported in the literature. We report an interesting case referred to our unit a day after birth with respiratory distress.
