Very small number of minor salivary glands is seen around the larynx and trachea. A tumor originating from the salivary glands is infrequently seen in the respiratory tract. Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) is a benign tumor that can be seen on the head and neck area, most frequently involving major salivary glands. PA originating from the tracheobronchial tree is very rare. We describe here one of such cases, detected during the workup of a health-care worker that became infected with coronavirus disease 2019. Clinicians should be aware of benign tumors arising from the tissues of the central airways and avoid late diagnosis.
