  • [Title] Expression of PLUNC family members in benign and malignant salivary gland tumours.
  • OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the expression of PLUNC proteins in benign and malignant salivary gland tumours and thus their potential use as diagnostic and / or prognostic tools.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A tissue microarray was assembled from 64 salivary gland tumours including adenoid cystic carcinoma, carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma, pleomorphic adenoma, acinic cell carcinoma, myoepithelial carcinoma and papillary cystadenocarcinoma.
  • RESULTS: PLUNC expression was only found in mucoepidermoid carcinomas and papillary cystadenocarcinoma; all other tumours studied were negative.
  • Mucin plugs, mucous and intermediate cells of mucoepidermoid carcinomas were positive for LPLUNC1 and SPLUNC2, but areas composed of epidermoid and clear cells were negative for all PLUNCs.
  • No correlation was found with tumour grade or outcome.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intense expression of two PLUNC proteins in mucous cells and mucin plugs of mucoepidermoid carcinoma and papillary cystadenocarcinoma indicate that they could be used as additional diagnostic tools in some equivocal cases, but further studies are needed to understand the biological processes involved in PLUNC expression.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: We investigated the methylation status and protein expression of four tumor suppressor genes to determine their role in salivary gland tumorigenesis.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We performed methylation-specific PCR and protein analyses of 29 normal salivary glands, 23 benign, and 79 malignant salivary gland neoplasms to determine the pattern and potential diagnostic and/or biological role of the RASSF1, RARbeta2, DAPK, and MGMT tumor suppressor gene methylation in these tumors.
  • Methylation occurred in 9 of 23 (39.1%) benign tumors; 3 (25.0%) pleomorphic adenomas and 6 (66.7%) Warthin's tumors at the MGMT, DAPK, or RASSF1 genes.
  • Methylation occurred in 33 of 79 (41.8%) malignant tumors; 8 (30.8%) adenoid cystic carcinomas, 6 (33.3%) mucoepidermoid carcinomas, 6 (42.9%) acinic cell carcinomas, and 13 (62.0%) salivary duct carcinomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: (a) Benign and malignant salivary tumors differed in the frequency and pattern of gene methylation;.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the salivary glands.
  • Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) comprises approximately 30% of all salivary gland malignancies, making it the most common malignant tumor of the salivary glands.
  • Sclerosing MEC (SMEC) is a rare subtype that may be misdiagnosed as a benign reactive condition or low-grade non-SMEC malignancy.
  • In the fourth case, the tumor showed similar sclerotic stroma; but the epithelial component was of intermediate grade.
  • We found MIB-1 labeling indices of 5% or less in cases 1, 2, and 3 and 12% in case 4, suggesting an association between MIB-1 index and tumor grade.
  • The latter seems to bear no relationship to tumor grade.

  • In this case report we describe a rare tumor--Oncocytic variant of Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the submandibular salivary gland with a review of the literature.
  • Oncocytic metaplasia in salivary glands is a benign change that is associated with increasing age and also seen in a few salivary gland neoplasms', which include oncocytoma, Warthin's tumor, and the rare, oncocytic carcinoma.
  • Oncocytic differentiation in mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is uncommon.
  • To the best of our knowledge this is the first case of oncocytic mucoepidermoid carcinoma involving the submandibular salivary gland.
  • The recognition of this entity is important, since most of the other primary oncocytic lesions of the salivary gland are benign.

  • 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.

  • Invasive mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the conjunctiva of the left lower eyelid was diagnosed in an orbital exenteration specimen of a 57-year-old woman, after a biopsy of the same lesion was originally diagnosed as invasive squamous cell carcinoma.
  • The tumor invaded the cornea, sclera, lacrimal gland, regional small nerves, and lymphatics, but did not show intraocular involvement.
  • The original biopsy specimen was reassessed with stains for mucin and found to be mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the conjunctiva.
  • We reviewed 21 cases of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the conjunctiva described to date in the English literature.
  • Evaluating suspected aggressive squamous cell carcinoma with special stains for mucin generally helps to identify mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the conjunctiva.
  • More extensive surgical excision than that used for squamous cell carcinoma should be implemented in the management of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the conjunctiva to prevent recurrence.

  • Alteration in some proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes may lead to the development and progression of these tumors.
  • AIMS: The purpose of this study was to analyze the immunohistochemical expression of P(53) and bcl-2 in some salivary gland tumors in relation to tumor size, histologic grade, and extent of invasion.
  • SETTING AND DESIGN: The sample consisted of 22 formalin-fixed paraffin embedded blocks of benign and malignant salivary glands tumors.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: P(53) and bcl-2 immunoreactivity was semi-quantitatively evaluated in at least 1000 cells examined under the microscope at 40x magnification and recorded as percentage of P(53) or bcl-2 positive tumor cells over the total number of cells examined in the same area.
  • However, all malignant tumors expressed P(53), with the highest record in low-grade adenocarcinoma (76%) and the lowest score was observed in both low-grade carcinoma in PA and adenocystic carcinoma. bcl-2 immunostaining was also assessed, the highest recorded score was in high-grade adeno cystic carcinoma (90%) and the lowest in both low-grade carcinoma ex-PA and low-grade cystic mucoepidermoid carcinoma (3%).
  • P(53)/bcl-2 immunostaining reactivity could be helpful in demonstrating salivary glands tumor behavior in terms of progression and extent of invasion.

  • The tumor was composed of variably sized cystic cavities within abundant reactive lymphoid tissue.
  • Tumor cells were not cycling as determined by MIB1 immunostaining, and the tumor karyotype was normal.
  • Although this tumor is rarely encountered by pediatric pathologists, awareness of its existence is important to distinguish it from possible malignant mimics, such as lymphoepithelial carcinoma and metastatic mucoepidermoid carcinoma in a lymph node.

  • METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on the clinical data of 23 cases lacrimal gland tumor involving the anterior and middle cranial fossae confirmed by radiological examination, including 11 cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma, 6 cases of pleomorphic adenocarcinoma (malignant mixed tumor), 2 cases of adenocarcinoma, 1 case of squamous cell carcinoma, 1 case of ductal carcinoma, 1 case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and 1 case of benign mixed tumor, 15 males and 8 females, aged 42.5 (2 - 76), with a case history of 43 months (2 months to 27 years), with the chief complaints of progressive proptosis, disgenesia of the eye ball, and orbit pain, all undergoing transcranial-orbital operation from August 1998 to February. 2006.
  • Recurrence of tumor occurred in 4 cases, and 1 case died from distant metastasis of adenocarcinoma.
  • Adequate orbital apex decompression and exposure of the tumor can result from suitable transcranial-orbital approach.
  • However, complete surgical excision is difficult, and the tumor has a tendency to recur post-operatively.

  • RESULTS: The major salivary glands were the main site of tumor occurrence (79% of cases arose in parotid glands); 37 patients had benign tumors (pleomorphic adenoma), 15 had malignant tumors (12 mucoepidermoid carcinoma, 9 low grade).
  • All the patients were treated by surgery; local relapses after parotidectomy were 4% and 25%, in benign and malignant tumors, respectively.
  • When tumor enucleation was performed, recurrences occurred in 50% of benign neoplasms.
  • At the time of the report, all patients with benign tumors were alive, 35(95%) without evidence of disease; only one patient with malignant tumor died of disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Epithelial salivary glands tumor in children had different characteristics compared with their adult counterpart with respect to the frequency of histotypes and site of occurrence, but their prognosis seems to be similar.
  • Parotidectomy (total or superficial) is the best choice for achieving good cure rates in both benign and malignant tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: In 136 patients, a primary parotid gland tumor was confirmed by histology.
  • Mucoepidermoid carcinomas, acinic cell carcinomas, and basal cell adenocarcinomas were not differentiable from Warthin tumors (P = .094, .396, and .604, respectively).
  • Due to an overlap not only within the group of benign and malignant lesions but also between groups, diagnoses should not be addressed on the basis of ADC values solely.
  • Therefore, further studies combining DWI, morphologic criteria, and probably other MR imaging techniques seem warranted.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • RESULTS: Among the 157 lesions, 110 (70.1%) were benign tumors, 18 (11.5%) were borderline tumors, and 29 (18.5%) were malignant tumors; 80 (72.7%) benign lesions and 14 (77.8%) borderline lesions located in the superficial lobe, whereas 7 (24.1%) malignant lesions located in the deep lobe and 10 (34.5%) in both the superficial lobe and the deep lobe; 99 (90.0%) benign lesions had sharp margins, 8 (44.4%) borderline lesions had sharp margins and 10 (55.6%) had partly unsharp margins, 10 (34.5%) malignant lesions had partly unsharp margins and 11 (37.9%) had unsharp margins.
  • Most benign lesions were round (68/110, 61.8%) or oval (23/110, 20.9%), while malignant lesions were often irregular (14/29, 48.3%).
  • No benign tumor involved adjacent structures.
  • CONCLUSION: On CT images, a parotid tumor located in the superficial lobe, with a round or oval contour and sharp margin, is more likely to be a benign tumor; otherwise, it might be a malignant tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Pilomatrixoma (pilomatrixoma, calcifying epithelioma of Malherbe) is a relatively uncommon, benign neoplasm arising from the skin adnexa.
  • The tumor can cause diagnostic difficulty not only for the clinician but also for the cytologist.
  • Three preliminary differential diagnoses were offered: mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the submandibular salivary gland, squamous cell carcinomatous deposit in a submandibular lymph node and calcifying odontogenic tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: The cytologic presentation of pilomatrixoma of the right submandibular region can masquerade as that of a malignant tumor, in this case mucoepidermoid carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or odontogenic tumor.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Salivary Gland Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • This review summarizes the new findings on salivary gland pathology under the following categories: immunohistochemistry; molecular genetics; newly recognized tumour types; known tumour entities with new findings; and progression of salivary gland tumours.
  • Specific chromosomal translocations are recognized in pleomorphic adenoma (with translocation involving PLGA1 or HMGA2 gene) and mucoepidermoid carcinoma (with MECT1-MAML2 gene fusion).
  • Newly recognized entities include: sclerosing polycystic adenosis (with recent molecular evidence supporting its neoplastic nature), sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma with eosinophilia, keratocystoma, adenoma with additional stromal component (lymphadenoma, lipoadenoma and adenofibroma), cribriform adenocarcinoma of the tongue and signet ring adenocarcinoma of minor salivary gland.
  • Known tumour entities with new findings include: salivary duct carcinoma (with newly recognized mucinous, micropapillary and sarcomatoid variants), intraductal carcinoma (with controversies in terminology), mucoepidermoid carcinoma (with newly proposed grading parameters and oncocytic variant), epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (with newly recognized morphological variants), small cell carcinoma (with most cases being related to Merkel cell carcinoma), extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (with specific chromosomal translocation) and chronic sclerosing sialadenitis (being a component of IgG4-related sclerosing disease).
  • Progression of salivary gland tumours can take the form of malignant transformation of a benign tumour, progression from low-grade to high-grade carcinoma, dedifferentiation, or stromal invasion of an in situ carcinoma.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • To determine the association between the expression of p63 gene isoforms (TA and DeltaN) and salivary gland tumorigenesis, we performed reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis of these markers in 71 benign and malignant salivary gland neoplasms.
  • TAp63 was highly expressed in most benign tumors and was either negative or weakly positive in most carcinomas.
  • Conversely, DeltaNp63 was negative or faintly positive in most benign neoplasms and was highly expressed in adenoid cystic, mucoepidermoid, and myoepithelial carcinomas.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis using anti-full-length p63 protein showed ubiquitous nuclear staining in basal and myoepithelial cells in both benign and malignant neoplasms.
  • JAG1 was expressed in most benign and malignant tumors and did not correlate with p63 isoforms expression.
  • We conclude that (1) p63 isoforms are differentially expressed in most benign and malignant tumors and may play distinct biological roles in certain salivary gland neoplasms;.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We describe our experience with both benign and malignant tumors of the palatal minor salivary glands, focusing on the extent of resection and options for defect reconstruction.
  • Twenty-four percent of the lesions were benign.
  • The most common malignant tumor encountered was low grade polymorphous adenocarcinoma, followed by mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and adenoid cystic carcinoma.
  • The extent of surgical resection was dictated by tumor pathology and evidence of perineural spread, and defects were reconstructed with a variety of techniques.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Neoplasms of the minor salivary glands in the palate may be excised, with limits dictated by tumor histopathology and perineural invasion.

  • MECT1, TORC1, or WAMTP1) to the Notch coactivator MAML2 is a characteristic feature of low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinomas of salivary and bronchial glands.
  • Here we show that the CRTC1-MAML2 gene fusion is also frequent in benign hidradenomas of the skin.
  • Immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated expression of the fusion protein in the majority of tumor cells, including clear cells, poroid cells, and cells with epidermoid and ductal differentiation.
  • Our findings thus demonstrate that the CRTC1-MAML2 gene fusion is frequent in hidradenomas and is associated with clear cell variants of this tumor.
  • Taken together, the present and previous observations indicate that the CRTC1-MAML2 fusion is etiologically linked to benign and low-grade malignant tumors originating from diverse exocrine glands rather than being linked to a separate tumor entity.

  • The FNA was misinterpreted as possible low grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: We report a case ofa rare and unusual tumor of the salivary glands.
  • The major problem in dealing with sebaceous adenoma is the recognition ofthis entity in cytologic specimens to avoid confusion with other more aggressive neoplasms such as low grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma and potentially to avoid radical surgery.

  • The benign tumors were predominantly Warthin's tumor (8) with 1 pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Malignant tumors included mucoepidermoid (3), acinic cell (2), and adenocarcinoma (1).
  • Among the 15 tumor patients, follow-up ranged from 1 month to 17 years.
  • Tumorigenic changes arise from heterotopic nodal inclusions, and although infrequent, should be considered in the differential diagnosis for isolated neck/periparotid masses and parotid Warthin's tumor.
  • Isolated low-grade malignant lesions/benign lesions are adequately managed by excision or parotidectomy alone.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHOD: Retrospective analysis of 54 cases with minor salivary gland tumor operated in our hospital from 1997 to 2004.
  • Among the remaining 38 patients, 2 patients with nasal cavity adenoid cystic carcinoma died of tumor recurrence 2 and 3 years after the surgery respectively, one patient with laryngeal myoepithelial carcinoma died of tumor recurrence 3 years after the surgery and one patient with paranasal sinus mucoepidermoid carcinoma died of recurrence 17 months after the surgery.
  • Two patients with paranasal sinus adenoid cystic carcinoma recurred after the primary surgery and were survived without tumor after salvage surgery.
  • The other patients survived with no tumor recurrence.
  • The treatment policy for benign tumors is simple tumor excision, while that for malignant tumors is surgery combined with pre- or post-operative radiation therapy.
  • Complete surgical resection of tumor masses and tumor free margin is essential for successful treatment of malignant minor salivary gland tumors.

  • Examination by fine needle aspiration cytology raised suspicion of mucoepidermoid or adenoid cystic carcinoma of the parotid gland and an excision was recommended.
  • The lateral parotidectomy specimen showed a poorly circumscribed gelatinous tumor measuring 15 mm in diameter within the parotid gland tissue.
  • Microscopically, the lesion featured large pools of mucin containing clusters of tumor cells with little atypia and low mitotic activity.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells showed expression of epithelial markers and of both estrogen and progesterone receptors.
  • Left lateral neck dissection revealed massive lymphogenous dissemination of the tumor.
  • Retrospective analysis of a skin biopsy from the same anatomic area performed 8 years prior to parotid neoplasm displayed a tumor with identical microscopic appearance and immunohistochemical profile (additionally performed) which was, however, misdiagnosed as a benign lesion.
  • The differential diagnostics of this rare tumor is discussed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A variety of tumors, including primary malignant tumors, secondary malignant tumors, and benign tumors, can occur in the tracheobronchial tree.
  • Primary malignant tumors commonly originate from the surface epithelium or the salivary glands, whereas most benign tumors arise from the mesenchymal tissue.
  • At fluorine 18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET), most squamous cell carcinomas show high uptake, whereas adenoid cystic carcinoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma show variable uptake depending on the grade of differentiation.
  • Carcinoid tumors commonly show intense enhancement at contrast material-enhanced CT, which can be helpful in making the diagnosis, and usually have lower uptake at FDG PET than would be expected for a malignant tumor.
  • Their CT manifestations are similar to those of primary malignant tumors, with uptake at FDG PET depending primarily on the metabolic activity and degree of differentiation of the primary tumor.
  • Among the benign tumors, hamartoma and lipoma can show characteristic CT findings such as "popcorn" calcification or internal fat.
  • However, CT findings in most benign tumors are nonspecific.
  • At FDG PET, benign tumors usually show little or no uptake and can be differentiated from malignant tumors.

  • To study the prevalence of tumor transformation that occurs in nevus sebaceus.
  • RESULTS: Two hundred seven sebaceous neoplasms (2.34%) from the 8819 skin biopsies that were taken in the Department of Pathology, Siriraj Hospital during the 9-year-period, were included After exclusion of some authentically non-sebaceous neoplasms, 182 sebaceous neoplasms were found Nevus sebaceus (n=85, 46.7%) and sebaceous hyperplasia (n=64, 35.1%) were the two most common benign lesions.
  • Tumor degeneration was found in 14 nevus sebaceus in which 21 neoplasms existed, namely, trichilemmoma (wart)-like lesion (n=4), primitive follicular induction (n=7), syringocystadenoma papilliferum (n=3), trichoblastoma (n=3), and one of each of trichoepithelioma, sebaceous adenoma, tumor of follicular infundiculum, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Twenty-six sebaceous carcinomas out of 182 sebaceous neoplasms, occurring mostly on the patients'eyelids, were found The most common sebaceous neoplasm was nevus sebaceus (n=85); the prophylactic excision of this lesion was recommended as tumor degeneration was frequent (14 out of 85 cases).

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Fifty consecutive patients with a suspected primary tumor of the parotid gland were examined with a DW EPI sequence (TR 1,500 msec, TE 77 msec, field of view 250 x 250 mm, pixel size 2.10 x 1.95 mm, section thickness 5 mm).
  • Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps were digitally transferred to MRIcro (Chris Rorden, University of Nottingham, Great Britain) and evaluated with a manually placed irregular region of interest (ROI) containing the entire tumor.
  • Pleomorphic adenomas (2.14 x 10 ( - 3) mm (2)/sec +/- 0.11 x 10 ( - 3) mm (2)/sec), Warthin tumors (0.85 x 10 ( - 3) mm (2)/sec +/- 0.1 x 10 ( - 3) mm (2)/sec), and mucoepidermoid carcinomas (1.04 x 10 ( - 3) mm (2)/sec +/- 0.3 x 10 ( - 3) mm (2)/sec) showed statistically significant different ADC values in comparison to all other evaluated tumors (p .001), and also among each other (p <.001).
  • CONCLUSION: Diffusion-weighted echo-planar MRI seems to be a valuable tool for differentiating benign from malignant primary parotid gland tumors.
