  • [Title] Immunohistochemical localization of mdm-2, p27Kip1 and bcl-2 in Warthin's tumor of the parotid gland.
  • BACKGROUND: Warthin's tumor is a benign monomorphic adenoma with unclear origin that almost occur exclusively in the parotid gland.
  • Etiology of Warthin's tumor as well as its malignant potential are still unclear.
  • Therefore immunohistochemical assessment of Warthin's tumor may be useful to detect its origin or its malignant transformation potential.
  • AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The present study aims to investigate the immunohistochemical expression of murine double minute-2 (mdm-2), p27Kip1 and B cell lymphoma-2 (bcl-2) in Warthin's tumor of parotid gland and also to clarify the role of these proteins in the behavior of that tumor.
  • METHODS: Twenty paraffin blocks of cases previously diagnosed as Warthin's tumor were collected for immunohistochemical staining with primary antibodies against mdm-2, p27Kip1 and bcl-2 using streptavidin-biotin immunoperoxidase staining system.
  • CONCLUSION: Mdm-2 played a tumor-suppressor role that might be implicated with the benign behavior of Warthin's tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Characterization of the lymphoid stroma in Warthin's tumor of salivary gland by immunohistochemistry, heavy chain gene and Bcl-2 gene rearrangement.
  • Warthin's tumor is rarely associated with malignant lymphoma.
  • In most cases the latter is a low grade process, including Marginal zone/Mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, and rarely diffuse large cell lymphoma which may arise de novo or secondary to low grade lymphoma.
  • This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of occult B cell monoclones and genetic alterations in Warthin's tumor.
  • Fourteen cases of Warthin's tumor were stained with antibodies to CD3, CD20, kappa and lambda light chains.
  • On six cases of randomly selected Warthin's tumor, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of IgH gene rearrangement (IgH-GR) was performed on genomic DNA extracted from formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue.
  • In all Warthin's tumor and sialadenitis cases most of lymphoid stroma was B cell phenotype and concentrated in germinal centers.
  • Our study concludes that the lymphoid stroma of Warthin's tumor is reactive.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Warthin's tumour and smoking.
  • OBJECTIVE: In an evaluation of our patients with parotid gland neoplasms, we noticed that patients with a Warthin's tumour were heavy smokers.
  • The aim of this study was to confirm earlier findings in the literature concerning a possible association between smoking and the development of a Warthin's tumour.
  • METHODS: A case control study was performed using the clinical records and discharge letters of all consecutive patients with a Warthin's tumour in the pathology database of our hospital covering the last 15 years.
  • Patients with a pleomorphic adenoma and a group of patients visiting our audiology department were used as controls.
  • RESULTS: A smoking history was found in 97.5% of the patients with a Warthin's tumour.
  • Of the patients with a pleomorphic adenoma, 59% had a smoking history; 56.5% of the audiology group had a smoking history.
  • Mean age at the time of the operation was 60.1 years of age in the Warthin's tumour group and 48.6 for the pleomorphic adenoma group.
  • CONCLUSION: The mean age for the development of a Warthin's tumour is ten years older than for a pleomorphic adenoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Evidence of lymphangiogenesis in Warthin's tumor of the parotid gland.
  • The details of the pathogenesis of cystadenolymphoma (Warthin's tumor) of the parotid gland are still unclear.
  • Neovascularization is considered to be a pivotal factor for solid tumor progression and biological behavior of the tumor.
  • Using double-labeling immunohistochemistry for LYVE-1 and CD34 (specific markers for lymphatic and vascular endothelial cells, respectively) this study analyzes lymphatic vessel density (LVD) and blood vessel density (BVD) in 10 Warthin's tumors and 10 pleomorphic adenomas of the parotid gland as well as in 5 normal parotid glands and 5 normal parotid lymph nodes.
  • There was no significant difference in the intratumoral LVD and BVD among pleomorphic adenoma and normal parotid gland tissue.
  • In contrast, the intratumoral LVD and BVD were significantly higher in Warthin's tumor than pleomorphic adenoma, normal parotid gland and parotid lymph node (P<0.0001 versus P<0.004).
  • The increase in lymphatic vessels in Warthin's tumor suggests that epithelial tumor cells might promote lymphangiogenesis in this kind of lesions.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Local excision procedure for Warthin's tumor of the parotid gland.
  • The aim of this work is to establish a local excision procedure (LEP) and indications of this procedure for Warthin's tumor.
  • Seventy-three patients (82 sides) with Warthin's tumor were studied.
  • For Warthin's tumor estimated to be below the I-S line (Group A), LEP was used, involving resection of the tumor after locating and dissecting the marginal mandibular and colli branches.
  • For tumors not meeting these criteria (Group B), partial superficial parotidectomy was performed.
  • Conversely, no significant difference in tumor size or incidence of postoperative facial paresis was identified between the 2 groups.
  • In conclusion, LEP is useful for Warthin's tumor below the I-S line.
  • This procedure seems applicable not only to Warthin's tumors, but also to other benign parotid tumors in the surgical field below the I-S line, such as pleomorphic adenoma and lymphoepithelial cyst.

  • [Title] CRTC1/MAML2 fusion transcript in Warthin's tumor and mucoepidermoid carcinoma: evidence for a common genetic association.
  • The t(11;19) translocation and its CRTC1/MAML2 fusion transcript have been identified in several examples of both Warthin's tumor and mucoepidermoid carcinoma and are believed to be associated with the development of a subset of these tumors.
  • To determine whether Warthin's tumor and mucoepidermoid carcinoma are genetically related, we used reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and DNA sequencing to analyze microdissected components of three tumors consisting of Warthin's tumor and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
  • We also investigated a metastatic melanoma to Warthin's tumor and a Warthin's carcinoma of the parotid gland for comparison.
  • The fusion transcript was identified in both Warthin's tumor and matching mucoepidermoid carcinoma components of all three tumors, in the Warthin's carcinoma, and in the Warthin's tumor component but not in the metastatic melanoma.
  • The results provide evidence for a link between the t(11;19) fusion gene and the development of a subset of Warthin's tumors with concurrent mucoepidermoid carcinoma and possible malignant transformation to Warthin's carcinoma.

  • [Title] New insights into the nature of Warthin's tumour.
  • Warthin's tumour is considered heterogeneous as to its pathogenesis with some data supporting a polyclonal origin for the epithelium, implying a non-neoplastic nature.
  • After inconsistent reports, current information from molecular studies suggests that a recurrent t(11;19) and associated CRTC1-MAML2 fusion oncogene characterizes a subset of Warthin's tumours and supports a clonal origin in such cases.
  • These findings, and the recent reports of Warthin's tumour and co-existent mucoepidermoid carcinoma with common CRTC1-MAML2 expression, provide a morphological and molecular framework for future studies as a basis for a fresh appraisal of the pathogenesis of Warthin's tumour.

  • [Title] Clinical features of cystadenolymphoma (Warthin's tumor) of the parotid gland: a retrospective comparative study of 96 cases.
  • The details of the etiopathogenesis of cystadenolymphoma (Warthin's tumor) are still unclear.
  • To explore the possible risk factors for the development of this tumor, medical records of 81 patients with 96 Warthin's tumors of the parotid glands were compared retrospectively with those of 91 patients with pleomorphic adenoma.
  • The medical history and clinical tumor characteristics of all patients were similar.
  • However, a significant male predominance of patients with Warthin's tumor could be noted (P<0.05).
  • The male to female ratio was 3.3:1 in patients with Warthin's tumor.
  • Multifocal Warthin's tumor were detected in five cases (6.2%), and 10 patients (12.3%) had bilateral lesions.
  • The odds ratio for the incidence of Warthin's tumor among current smokers compared with never smokers was 8.3 (P<0.0001).
  • Compared with never smokers, clearly higher odds of Warthin's tumor was observed in heavy smokers (more than 30 pack-years) (odds ratio=24.1, P<0.0001) than patients who smoked less than 30 pack-years (odds ratio=4.9, P<0.0001).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Using time-dependent covariate analysis to elucidate the relation of smoking history to Warthin's tumor risk.
  • The authors aimed to elucidate the relation of the time-dependent smoking history parameters--age at smoking initiation and smoking intensity, duration, and latency--to the risk of Warthin's tumor, a benign tumor of the salivary gland for which cigarette smoking is a strong risk factor.
  • They studied 117 cases of Warthin's tumor and 336 matched controls included in an Israeli nationwide case-control study of parotid gland tumors conducted from 2002 to 2003 by using the Cox regression model with time-dependent covariates, with age as the time axis.
  • The latter finding implies that the effect of time since cessation dominates the effect of age at initiation, with risk decreasing sharply after smoking cessation.
  • The relation of smoking variables to Warthin's tumor agrees with the patterns reported for lung cancer.

  • [Title] [Surgical procedure for Warthin's tumor in the parotid gland].
  • Warthin's tumor is benign and exclusively involves the parotid gland but may, however, often show multifocal and/or bilateral growth.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the surgical procedure for removal of this tumor.
  • Sixty patients with Warthin's tumor in the parotid gland who presented at the Kansai Medical University Hospital from 1990 to 1999 were the subjects of the present study.
  • We performed enucleation for tumors in the deep lobe.
  • Tumors in the superficial lobe were resected with partial parotidectomy, and an enucleative procedure was also performed at the bottom of the tumor where the tumor capsule directly touched the facial nerve.
  • Therefore, we recommend that enucleation is a useful choice as a surgical procedure for the removal of Warthin's tumor after accurate detection of the tumors using MRI.
  • The incidence of palsy increased after surgery for multiple tumors or deep lobe tumors.
  • These findings indicate that more careful consideration for preservation of the facial nerve should be given in such cases and that simultaneous surgery for such tumors in the bilateral parotid glands should be avoided to prevent bilateral facial nerve palsy.

  • [Title] Acute parotitis as a complication of fine-needle aspiration in Warthin's tumor. A unique finding of a 3-year experience with parotid tumor aspiration.
  • Some studies suggest that FNA can cause infarction or metaplastic transformation of benign Warthin's tumors.
  • RESULTS: Of the 256 lesions aspirated, 99 patients (39%), were cytologically diagnosed as benign tumors, including 31 (12%) Warthin's tumors, of which 16/17 resected and confirmed histologically.
  • Five patients with Warthin's tumor had post-FNA parotitis and were treated accordingly.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The combination of cystic spaces surrounded by oncocytic cells and a poor blood supply makes the tumor susceptible to infarction and inflammation.
  • Nevertheless, when Warthin's tumor is clinically suspected on the basis of its location (tail of the parotid gland), cystic texture, patient sex (male) and age, one should consider parotitis as a possible complication.

  • [Title] Gray-scale and color Doppler ultrasonographic features of pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin's tumor in major salivary glands.
  • Our aim was to assess the specific ultrasonic characteristics of pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin's tumor in major salivary glands.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed and analyzed the ultrasonographic (US) features of 19 pleomorphic adenomas in 16 patients and 29 Warthin's tumors in 20 patients.
  • The features included tumor size, echotexture, boundary, and shape on gray-scale US imaging and grading and distribution of tumor vascularity on color Doppler ultrasound (CDU).
  • Most of the tumors (87.5%) were >or=10 mm, and 93.8% were well defined.
  • Only two of 29 Warthin's tumors had the highest grade of vascularity (+++).
  • Predominantly central blood flow was present in 58.6% of Warthin's tumors and 42.1% of pleomorphic adenomas.
  • Lobulated margin (shape) was noted in 84.2% of pleomorphic adenomas and 51.7% of Warthin's tumors (P<.05).
  • Anechoic cystic components were present in 13 (44.8%) of 29 Warthin's tumors and in only one pleomorphic adenoma (1/19, 5.3%) (P<.01).
  • Internal anechoic cystic components were absent from pleomorphic adenomas but present in some Warthin's tumors.
  • The grading and distribution of blood flow signals on CDU provided only limited additional diagnostic information for distinguishing pleomorphic adenomas from Warthin's tumors.
  • Gray-scale ultrasonography is a useful method for evaluating and distinguishing pleomorphic adenomas from Warthin's tumors.

  • Reactive follicular hyperplasia of the intraparotid lymph nodes (IPLs) forming a parotid tumor has rarely been reported, and the pathogenesis of Warthin's tumor has not been determined.
  • A case of hyperplastic IPLs with incipient Warthin's tumors presenting as a parotid tumor is presented.
  • A 68-year-old Japanese patient presented with a tumor of the right parotid gland, and the tumor was resected.
  • Very small foci of Warthin's tumor were recognized in two of the IPLs.
  • Immunohistochemical studies showed that the oncocytes of the small Warthin's tumor and the ductular elements were positive for cytokeratin, but negative for carcinoembryonic antigen, vimentin, alpha-smooth muscle antigen, and S100 protein.
  • The present case suggests that reactive hyperplastic IPLs may form a parotid tumor, and that Warthin's tumor may develop in hyperplastic IPLs at the inception of its tumorigenesis.

  • [Title] Tissue that has lost its track: Warthin's tumour.
  • The origin of cystadenolymphoma (Warthin's tumour) of the parotid gland is unknown.
  • According to the most favoured hypothesis, Warthin's tumour results from the proliferation of salivary gland ductal cells that were entrapped in parotid lymph nodes during embryonal life.
  • If this is correct, and the almost total lack of recurrence and malignant transformation of this lesion lends credence to this view, Warthin's tumour is correctly classified in the group of tumour-like lesions and should not be considered to be a monomorphic adenoma.

  • [Title] Basal cell adenoma of the parotid gland: a clinicopathological study of nine cases--basal cell adenoma versus pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin's tumor.
  • The aim of this study is to investigate the clinical and pathological characteristics of basal cell adenoma (BCA) and to compare the diagnosis/treatment of BCA with those of Warthin's tumor (WT) and pleomorphic adenoma (PA).
  • Among 192 patients with benign tumors of the parotid gland who underwent surgery, 9 had BCA.
  • All of these tumors showed a benign pattern on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Considering the gender difference, tumor site, and age, it is necessary to differentiate BCA from PA rather than from WT.
  • BCA is the third most common of the benign parotid tumors, following WT and PA, although its incidence is low.
  • When PA and WT are ruled out by FNAB after a tentative diagnosis of benign tumor has been based on imaging findings, BCA should be considered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Factors influencing the occurrence of multicentric and 'recurrent' Warthin's tumour: a cross sectional study.
  • The multicentric nature of Warthin's tumour has been well recognised, though the factors predicting its occurrence and its influence on management remain speculative.
  • In this cross sectional study, the authors analysed the presentation, management and outcome of solitary and multicentric Warthin's tumour, treated in the maxillofacial unit and investigated factors that could influence the occurrence of multicentric and recurrent tumours.
  • Warthin's tumour was found in 24% (150/628) of patients presenting with parotid neoplasms and multicentric tumours were found in 13% (21/ 161) of parotidectomy specimens.
  • The recurrence rate was 0% in the solitary and 10% in the multicentric tumour group.
  • Intra-operative rupture was not uncommon (11%), but was not associated with tumour recurrence (P= or >0.999).

  • The histomorphological examination of the surgical specimen showed an intraglandular area of predominantly chronic histiocytic inflammation with foreign body reaction in the intimate neighbourhood of a small, subtotally infarcted Warthin's tumour.
  • Not birefringent spindle-shaped crystals could be demonstrated both within the parotitis or intraluminally in vital parts of the Warthin's tumour.
  • In terms of the possible causes of the severe intraglandular inflammation, all arguments favour a primary infarction of the Warthin's tumour with the release of intraluminal preformed crystals which secondarily induce a massive inflammation with foreign body reaction, corresponding to the clinical presentation of a subacute parotitis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The parotid gland is the most usual location of benign neoplasms affecting major salivary glands and quite often the recurrence of these tumours is noticed, specially in the case of pleomorphic adenoma.
  • The occurrence of multiple tumours in the parotid glands is rare and the majority of these are multifocal Warthin's tumors (papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum).
  • The simultaneous development of tumours with different histological types is unusual and when it occurs, the most common combination is a pleomorphic adenoma and a Warthin's tumor.
  • There are many articles about Multiple Parotid Tumors (MPT) but only a few of them are focused on unilateral synchronous benings tumors, being pleomorphic adenoma and Warthin's these tumors.
  • The report describes a 55 year old female with a pleomorphic adenoma occurring synchronously with a Warthin's tumor within the superficial lobe of her left parotid gland.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Diagnostic value of FDG PET and salivary gland scintigraphy for parotid tumors.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the diagnostic value of the combination of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET and Tc-99m pertechnetate salivary gland scintigraphy in parotid tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy-two patients with benign parotid gland tumors (n = 52), malignant parotid tumors (n = 12), and inflammation (n = 8) underwent both FDG PET and salivary gland scintigraphy within 1 week, and 66 of the patients also underwent gallium scintigraphy.
  • RESULTS: Malignant parotid tumors showed significantly higher FDG uptake (standard uptake values [SUVs]) than both benign tumors and inflammation, except in Warthin's tumor (5.82 +/- 3.95 vs. 2.07 +/- 1.33; P <0.01).
  • Although the SUV values of Warthin's tumor and malignant parotid tumors overlapped somewhat, Warthin's tumor did demonstrate increased radiotracer uptake, and it was reliably distinguished from other parotid gland tumors by the use of salivary gland scintigraphy.
  • Considering a SUV value >3 as being positive for malignancy and excluding Warthin's tumor on the basis of salivary gland scintigraphy, sensitivity and specificity of FDG PET were 75% and 80%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although the diagnostic value of FDG PET in the differentiation of malignant from benign parotid gland tumors was limited because of the high FDG uptake in some benign tumors, and particularly pleomorphic adenomas, combining salivary gland scintigraphy with FDG PET may help to negate this drawback, and this combination may be a more promising approach for differentiation of various parotid gland tumors in patients compared with nondiagnostic needle aspiration.

  • [Title] Induction of parotitis by fine-needle aspiration in parotid Warthin's tumor.
  • OBJECTIVES: To estimate parotitis caused by fine-needle aspiration (FNA) in parotid Warthin tumor.
  • SETTING: Hospital records were reviewed for 104 parotid tumors (103 patients) including 35 Warthin tumors, which underwent FNA within our department.
  • RESULTS: Three patients with four Warthin tumors among them noticed parotid pain, swelling, and abscess formation as a consequence of acute parotitis after FNA.
  • Examinations of the materials obtained from tumor puncture or drainage before the start of antibiotic therapy showed no bacterial association in any patient.
  • Two of the patients with Warthin tumor underwent parotidectomy, and the surgical specimens indicated histopathological changes with necrosis, abscess, granuloma, and the infiltration of inflammatory cells including Langhans-type multinucleated giant cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: It is conceivable that Warthin tumor bears the characteristics of inflammation induced by the FNA procedure without any relation to infection.
  • Therefore, it may be better to avoid routine FNA and give priority to diagnostic imagings over FNA in the diagnosis of tumors strongly suspected as Warthin tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Effects of benign parotid tumors on unstimulated saliva secretion from the parotid gland.
  • OBJECTIVE: Salivary tumors can manifest as abnormalities of the gland itself and/or changes in salivary flow.
  • However, effects of salivary tumors on saliva secretion have not been studied in much detail.
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate effects of benign parotid tumors on unstimulated saliva secretion from the affected gland.
  • METHODS: Unstimulated parotid saliva was collected bilaterally using the swab method in patients with unilateral pleomorphic adenoma (n=14) or Warthin's tumor (n=6).
  • No difference was found between the involved and non-involved side when the patients with pleomorphic adenoma or Warthin's tumor were separately analyzed.
  • CONCLUSION: The present results suggest that the most common benign parotid tumors do not alter unstimulated salivary flow from the affected gland.

  • [Title] CRTC1/MAML2 fusion transcript in high grade mucoepidermoid carcinomas of salivary and thyroid glands and Warthin's tumors: implications for histogenesis and biologic behavior.
  • We analyzed 55 primary salivary gland tumors including 22 mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MECs) to determine the association of MECT1/TORC1/CRTC1-MAML2 fusion transcript to tumor types, level of MEC differentiation and clinicopathologic parameters.
  • Our primary salivary gland tumors were composed of 22 MECs, 11 Warthin's tumors, 10 adenoid cystic carcinomas, two basaloid carcinomas, five salivary duct carcinomas, and five adenocarcinomas, not otherwise specified.
  • Significant correlation between fusion negative tumors and distant metastasis was noted (P = 0.005).
  • Four (36%) of the 11 Warthin's tumors were also positive for the transcript.
  • We conclude that the CRTC1/MAML2 transcript may be detected in both low and high grade MEC, that fusion negative tumors may define a subset of biologically aggressive MEC's tumors, that the fusion is present in primary MECs of the thyroid gland and is also detectable in Warthin's tumor, and that a subset of MECs can be targeted for therapeutic intervention.

  • Recent studies have shown that the t(11;19)(q21;p13) translocation in mucoepidermoid carcinomas and benign Warthin's tumors results in a fusion of the N-terminal CREB-binding domain of the cAMP coactivator TORC1 (a.k.a.
  • Here we show that a third tumor type, clear cell hidradenoma of the skin, also expresses this gene fusion.
  • These results demonstrate that the t(11;19) in mucoepidermoid carcinoma, Warthin's tumor, and clear cell hidradenoma targets the same genes and results in identical gene fusions, indicating that at least subgroups of these glandular tumors evolve through activation of the same molecular pathways.

  • Samples were derived from 5 patients with pleomorphic adenoma, 4 with Warthin's tumour, one with clear cell carcinoma, and 2 with mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
  • Benign Warthin's tumour and pleomorphic adenoma showed very distinctive gene expression patterns.
  • A total of 133 genes differentiated the single malignant clear cell carcinoma from non-tumour salivary glands (p < 0.01), whereas only 16 genes separated it from the highly related benign pleomorphic adenoma (p < 0.01).
  • The results show gene expression alterations common to all tumours and unique to each benign and malignant tumour.
  • The numerous Expressed Sequence Tags of unknown function we identified could also become useful as tumour markers and represent a set of novel tumour-associated genes.

  • [Title] High prevalence of Human Herpes Virus 8 (HHV-8) in patients with Warthin's tumors of the salivary gland.
  • BACKGROUND: Warthin's tumor is a common benign neoplasm of the salivary gland.
  • OBJECTIVES: To provide insights into the HHV-8 cell tropism, the presence of HHV-8 was investigated in a series of Warthin's tumors of the salivary gland and corresponding adjacent normal tissue.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Forty-three patients with Warthin's tumors (cystadenolymphoma) were tested for the presence of HHV-8 DNA, and corresponding adjacent normal tissue samples were obtained from 15 patients.
  • RESULTS: HHV-8 DNA was detected in 19 out of 43 (44%) salivary gland tumor samples.
  • Among the 15 cases with paired samples, 9 were HHV-8-positive for both samples, 4 were HHV-8-negative for both samples while in two cases HHV-8 was detected only in the tumor specimens.
  • CONCLUSIONS: HHV-8 is frequently detected in adenoid salivary neoplasms, suggesting a significant role of the virus in the etiopathogenesis of the disease.
  • Larger studies are required to investigate the role of HHV-8 in the development or progression of Warthin's tumors.

58. Chan WH, Lee KW, Chiang FY, Ho KY, Chai CY, Kuo WR: Features of parotid gland diseases and surgical results in southern Taiwan. Kaohsiung J Med Sci; 2010 Sep;26(9):483-92

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Various parotid gland diseases are seen clinically, including inflammation, sialolithiasis, and benign and malignant tumors.
  • Here, we investigated the relationship between tumor characteristics and pathology, and considered whether the former could be used to differentiate malignant from benign parotid gland diseases.
  • Two hundred and eighty-one patients (88.9%) had benign disease, and 35 (11.1%) had malignant disease.
  • The most common benign disease was pleomorphic adenoma (115 cases, 36.4%), but the most common disease in male patients was Warthin's tumor, a finding which, as far as we aware, has not been previously been reported in the literature.
  • The incidence of Warthin's tumor seems to be increasing.
  • In malignant disease, the most common was acinic cell carcinoma (8 cases, 22.9%).
  • Compared with benign disease, malignant parotid gland disease more often presents as a hard, painful, fixed and large mass (> 3 cm), and more often involves the deep lobe of the parotid gland.
  • Partial parotidectomy was adequate for most tumors, including pleomorphic adenoma.
  • However, there was no difference in transient facial palsy rate between benign and malignant parotid gland disease, although parotid gland cancer had a higher incidence of permanent facial palsy postoperatively.

  • [Title] Warthin's tumor distribution within the parotid gland. A feasible etiologic source from lymph nodal tissue.
  • AIM: Warthin's tumor (WT) is the second commonest parotid gland neoplasm after pleomorphic adenoma (PA).
  • The aim of this study was to support the strict topic and etiologic link hypothesised between this tumor and the intraparotid lymph nodes, as being massively present in the tail, by assessing the WT distribution within the parotid gland.
  • In all sample, staging of parotid gland tumors was defined by sonography and magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Furthermore, tumor localization, size, bilaterality and multifocality were assessed according to radiological, intraoperative and histopathological findings.
  • CONCLUSION: Since the tail has been well known to present the greatest distribution of intra-parotid lymph nodes, our clinical findings on WT parotid localization could suggest the possible origin of this tumor from epithelial salivary gland ductal inclusions, as being likely entrapped during embryogenesis within the intra-parotid lymph nodes, and could support the hypothesis of a heterotopy in the pathogenesis of WT.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • AIM OF THE WORK: The authors present unusually rare case primary multiple synchronicus benign tumor of the ipsilateral parotid gland: oncocytoma and Warthin's tumor, which is rare among occasionally occurred multiple tumors with different histology in the salivary glands.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: A 71-year-old man presented with the tumor in the right parotid gland.
  • The preoperative ultrasonography and macroscopic analysis of the removed parotid gland tissue revealed only one tumor recognised histopathologically as adenolimphoma, but upon histopathological examination Warthin's tumor proved to coexist with oncocytoma.
  • RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: In the ultrasonography examination some salivary glands tumors may not be recognised.
  • The histopathological examination is the ultimate method in recognising tumors, which are not detected in the preoperative diagnosis.
  • The superficial parotidectomy protects from the recrudescence of the superficial lobe of the parotid gland tumors.
  • The coexistence of the oncocytoma and Warthin's in one parotid gland is extremely rare.

  • Chromosome translocations in tumors frequently give rise to fusion genes encoding proteins with oncogenic activities.
  • Mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MEC) are characterized by a t(11;19)(q21-22;p13) translocation found in approximately 60% of the tumors.
  • Pending the elucidation of the t(11;19) at the molecular level of an apparently identical chromosomal translocation in Warthin's tumor, the identification of the translocation in MEC by FISH- and/or RT-PCR-analyses may become important in diagnosis and might have prognostic relevance.
  • Warthin's tumors are benign salivary gland neoplasms with a distinctive histomorphology and histogenesis completely different from MEC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Although several studies have reported that oropharyngeal infection with HPV may predispose to tumorigenesis, little is known about the etiological factors of salivary gland tumors and the presence of HPV.
  • We studied 9 parotid lesions for HPV infection including an oncocytoma, an acinic cell carcinoma, a high-grade adenocarcinoma, a low-grade polymorphous adenocarcinoma, a Warthin's tumor and 2 pleomorphic adenomas, a lymphoepithelial cyst and a lipoma of the parotid gland.
  • High viral load of highrisk genotypes of HPV was found in the oncocytoma, in one of the pleomorphic adenomas, and in the Warthin's tumor.
  • Finally, in situ PCR indicated that HPV16 amplification occurred in the salivary gland tumors.
  • This is the first time that highrisk HPV genotypes are detected in these histological types of parotid lesions, suggesting the possible involvement of the virus in the disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Significant factors affecting the operation time for benign parotid tumor].
  • Tumors of the parotid gland are fairly frequent among head and neck tumors.
  • Parotidectomy for benign tumors is necessary for diagnosis and therapy.
  • To measure the operation time and determine the factors affecting it, 71 cases, including 43 cases of pleomorphic adenomas and 28 cases Warthin's tumor, were retrospectively reviewed to the determine if the operation time depended on the age, sex, operated side, presence of complications, BMI, bleeding volume, tumor size, tumor location, exposure of branches of the facial nerve, and experience of the surgeon.
  • The results revealed that the bleeding volume, tumor size, tumor location and experience of the surgeon were significantly correlated with the operation time, whereas age, sex, operated side, presentation of complications and BMI showed no correlation with the operation time.
  • Taken together, to shorten the operation time, the inexperienced surgeon should start with smaller tumors and surgery in the superficial lobe in the initial training period, and supervision by well-experienced supervised surgeons is required until 30-40 are undertaken.

  • Worldwide series show a contrast in the relative incidence of salivary gland tumors, with some discrepancies in clinicopathological data.
  • Benign tumors represented 78.3% of the cases.
  • Parotid gland tumors were the most frequent (68.5% of cases) and patient age ranged from 1 to 88 years-old (median of 45 years old).
  • The most frequent tumors were pleomorphic adenomas (68.4%) and benign tumors were significantly more frequent in the parotid (75.9%), while malignant tumors were more frequent in the minor salivary glands (40%) (P < 0.05).
  • In conclusion, women and the parotid gland were the most affected and pleomorphic adenoma was the most frequent lesion, followed by adenoid cystic carcinoma and Warthin's tumor.

  • In our study, 3461 cases of salivary gland tumor treated between 1955 and 2002 at West China Stomatology Hospital of Sichuan University were retrospectively analyzed, and compared with the previous reports.
  • Measures such as age, tumor location, tumor histological type, and the nature of the growth (benign or malignant) were recorded at the same time.
  • The findings are as follows: the average ages of salivary gland tumor patients were 41.38 years for the benign cases and 45.20 for the malignant ones; the male:female ratio was 0.
  • 99:1 in the benign cases and 1.34:1 in the malignant ones; primary tumors were mostly in the parotid gland, palate and submandibular gland in sequence.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the most frequent benign tumor followed by Warthin's tumor and basal cell adenoma, whereas mucoepidermoid carcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma and adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified were the most frequent malignant tumors.
  • The incidence of salivary gland tumors increased with age.
  • The male:female ratio of malignant tumors was higher than that of benign ones.
  • The parotid gland and palate were the most common locations of salivary gland tumors.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma were the most frequent benign and malignant tumors, respectively.

  • Salivary gland tumors are observed as single tumors in one salivary gland.
  • Double or multiple tumors of the salivary gland tumors are unusual and metachronous or bilateral salivary gland tumors are more observed than synchronous or unilateral tumors.
  • The most commonly seen multiple tumor unilaterally or bilaterally is the Warthin's tumor.
  • More extensive excision of the parotid gland tumor, careful macroscopic perioperative examination of the surgical specimen, and histologic evaluation of all surgical specimens might be necessary for reducing revision operations and surgical complications.

  • Salivary gland neoplasms account for <3% of all tumors.
  • As a general rule, the smaller the involved salivary gland, the higher is the possibility of the tumor being malignant.
  • The role of imaging in assessment of salivary gland tumour is to define intra-glandular vs. extra-glandular location, detect malignant features, assess local extension and invasion, detect nodal metastases and systemic involvement.
  • If deep tissue extension is suspected or malignancy confirmed on cytology, an MRI or CT is mandatory to evaluate tumour extent, local invasion and perineural spread.
  • Recent study suggests that MR spectroscopy may differentiate malignant and benign salivary gland tumours as well as distinguishing Warthin's tumor from pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Sialography is used to delineate the salivary ductal system and has limited role in assessment of tumour extent.

  • [Title] Warthin tumor: a curious entity--case reports and review of literature.
  • Warthin tumor was first described in the American literature, by Aldred Warthin, in 1929, the pathologist who named this tumor papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum, but since than it was also knew as adenolymphoma, cystadenolymphoma, and Warthin tumor.
  • Because of its microscopically appearance and unknown origin, this tumor entity is still fascinating head and neck surgeons and pathologist.
  • We evaluate the histopathological aspect of Warthin tumors using Hematoxylin-Eosin stain, and immunohistochemical and histological techniques.
  • We reviewed the medical record of patients with salivary gland tumors diagnosed at County Hospital of Timisoara from 2002-2008.
  • In six years, 22 cases with Warthin tumor were diagnosed and among them 17 men and five women, with average age 58.47.
  • The analysis showed that 77.27% of Warthin tumors occurred in men, and the main histopathological aspect was with 50% epithelial component.
  • The standard and the histological and immunohistochemical techniques highlighted the complex and variable microscopical appearance of Warthin tumor that the pathologist should consider when a diagnosis for this tumor is to be considered.

  • Metaplastic Warthin tumor is a rarely seen subtype of Warthin tumor.
  • Making a diagnosis can become easier by knowing this entity of Warthin tumor well and by correlating the radiologic findings with pathology.
  • In this case presentation, imaging features of a metaplastic Warthin tumor are presented together with its histopathologic findings.
  • When a solid mass with peripheral enhancing cystic-necrotic component and well defined contour and capsule that shows early enhancement and washout is identified with imaging methods in parotid gland, metaplastic Warthin tumor should be indicated in the differential diagnosis before the histopathologic evaluation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Warthin tumor: a potential source of diagnostic error.
  • PURPOSE: Warthin tumor, also known as papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum, is a fairly common tumor.
  • It makes up 14% to 30% of parotid tumors.
  • There has been much interest in this tumor because of its typical and intriguing morphologic features: the association of benign-looking lymphoid and epithelial components and its frequent occurrence in the intraparotid or periparotid lymph nodes.
  • Moreover, multifocal and/or bilateral Warthin tumors have been reported, and malignant transformation of Warthin tumor and its association with other malignancies have been documented.
  • Warthin tumor can sometimes be confused with other pathologic lesions because of symptoms and signs that accompany the disease, so it could be treated as other pathologic lesions.
  • The first one had a differentiated squamous cell carcinoma, no lymph node metastasis, and a Warthin tumor of the left parotid gland.
  • RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and histopathologic features of 3 cases where clinical presentation of a Warthin tumor lies in the possible errors in diagnosis and decision making and not least in the management of the patient.

  • [Title] Identification of Warthin tumor: magnetic resonance imaging versus salivary scintigraphy with technetium-99m pertechnetate.
  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of technetium-99m (Tc-99m) pertechnetate scintigraphy and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the diagnosis of Warthin tumor.
  • METHODS: Sixteen cases of Warthin tumor and 17 cases of non-Warthin tumor were examined by Tc-99m pertechnetate scintigraphy with lemon juice stimulation and MR imaging, including T1-weighted, T2-weighted, short inversion time inversion recovery, diffusion-weighted, and contrast-enhanced dynamic images.
  • RESULTS: The mean area under the ROC curves of MR imaging in the diagnosis of Warthin tumor (0.97) was higher than that of Tc-99m pertechnetate scintigraphy (0.88).
  • CONCLUSION: Magnetic resonance imaging is more useful in the evaluation of Warthin tumor than Tc-99m pertechnetate scintigraphy.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Salivary Gland Disorders.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Main aim of this work has been achieved through the execution of partial steps: the analysis of the trends in occurrence of non-malignant neoplasm in the 12-year period, the analysis of the epidemiological differences: sex, age, place of residence - town or country, duration of symptoms, diameter of the tumour at the time the patient reported for treatment, histological structures that were carried on the basis of the comparison of data collected in the two periods of time: period I--the years 1995-2000 and period II--the years 2001-2006.
  • In both periods the most frequent benign tumour was the mixed tumour (54.9% of all tumours) and constituted 60% and 54% of all tumours in the respective periods analyzed.
  • The next most frequently occurring tumour was Warthin's tumour, identified in 31.2% of the patients, in 23% in period I and 35% in period II.
  • Duration of the symptoms, ranged from 1 month to 20 years, 14 months on average, yet in 263 cases the tumour has been developing developed for over a year.
  • It was 3 cm with regard to the most frequently occurring tumours: adenoma polymorphum, adenoma monomorphum and cystadenolymphoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Benign tumours account for 80% of case histories with a relationship 1:4 M/F, the most frequent being pleomorphic adenoma (57.3% of cases), followed by Warthin's tumour (32.4%), this rating not having been confirmed in case histories (8-10%) in the literature.
  • Enucleoresection was limited to approximately 15% of neoplasms, enucleation to <10% of cases with only 2% of pleomorph adenoma due to the well-known anatomo-pathological characteristics which may lead to relapse.
  • When no clinically evident lymph nodes were present (NO) considering the tumour histotype, two thirds of patients underwent surgery or radiotherapy, while in the remainder the wait-and-see attitude was prefered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In addition, we also examined patients in whom there was no documented evidence of parotid pathology before FDG-PET scan and a suspicion of disease involvement was first raised in the reports in view of focal uptake in the FDG-PET images.
  • Only those cases with no earlier history of disease involvement of parotid gland or known parotid pathology before FDG-PET were selected for this analysis.
  • These patients were selected from a population of patients with a known malignancy elsewhere who underwent conventional whole-body FDG-PET or PET/CT for staging, disease viability assessment, or treatment monitoring purposes and had demonstrated varying patterns of FDG uptake (unilateral, bilateral, symmetric, or asymmetric) in the parotid glands.
  • In five patients with asymmetric and focally enhanced FDG uptake, a suspicion of disease involvement was raised in the reports.
  • No revelation of disease either by the MRI or follow-up clinical and FDG-PET examinations was observed in patients with asymmetric diffuse uptake.
  • The final diagnosis based upon histopathology revealed primary parotid tumors (e.g., Warthin's tumor and pleomorphic adenoma, which presented as FDG-avid parotid incidentaloma) or metastatic disease involvement.
  • An asymmetrical uptake, especially when focal, would warrant further radiological and histopathological correlation to rule out disease involvement.
  • At times, this can lead to the detection of an asymptomatic hitherto unknown etiology, which would have been otherwise interpreted as a metastatic disease in the background of an existing malignancy in these patients; this is noteworthy as it may have a bearing on the subsequent management of these patients.
