  • [Title] Oncocytic variant of mucoepidermoid carcinoma of submandibular gland: an unusual clinical and morphological entity.
  • 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.
  • Only twelve well-documented cases of oncocytic MEC have been reported previously all of which occurred in the parotid gland.
  • 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.

  • [Title] [Surgery of benign tumors of the parotid gland: the value of fine needle aspiration cytology].
  • [Transliterated title] Gutartige Tumoren der Glandula parotidea: Präoperative Aspirationszytologie und chirurgische Strategie.
  • BACKGROUND: Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a widely used diagnostic tool to evaluate neoplastic or inflammatory tumorous lesions of the salivary glands.
  • In cases of benign tumors of the parotid gland, a (partial) superficial parotidectomy is usually recommended.
  • However, for tumors other than pleomorphic adenomas (such as cystadenolymphomas, other adenomas, or benign tumor-like lesions) this operation is considered an overtreatment because extracapsular satellites are rare and recurrences in case of a capsular lesion are not likely.
  • In such cases, a less extended surgery (enucleation) with lower morbidity is sufficient and can be carried out provided that pleomorphic adenomas and non-pleomorphic benign lesions are reliably differentiated prior to surgery.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of the FNAC in differentiating benign tumors of the parotid gland.
  • METHODS: A retrospective evaluation of 160 cases of benign parotid gland tumors was performed and the cytological diagnoses compared with the histomorphological results.
  • RESULTS: FNAC showed a sensitivity of 74.2% and a specificity of 89.8% for differentiation between pleomorphic adenomas and non-pleomorphic benign lesions.
  • The predictive value for pleomorphic adenomas was 82.1%, and for non-pleomorphic benign lesions 84.6%.
  • DISCUSSION/CONCLUSION: Poor quality and hypocellularity of the cytological smears seem to negatively effect the outcome of the cytological diagnosis.
  • It is concluded that only an accurate diagnosis of non-pleomorphic adenoma or a benign tumor-like lesion, based on an adequate FNAC specimen and assessed by an experienced cytopathologist, can justify tumor enucleation because the risk of pleomorphic adenoma is only 2% under these circumstances.

  • [Title] Epithelial salivary tumors in Sri Lanka: a retrospective study of 713 cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic data to determine the distribution of epithelial salivary tumors, especially minor salivary tumors, in Sri Lanka.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 713 salivary tumors diagnosed at the Department of Oral Pathology, during the period from 1990 to 2007 were reviewed.
  • RESULTS: Out of the 713 epithelial salivary tumors, 356 (49.9%) were classified as benign and 357 (50.1%) as malignant, indicating a benign-to-malignant ratio of 1:1.
  • The majority of both benign (29%) and malignant (39%) tumors occurred in the minor salivary glands.
  • Malignant tumors were slightly more common in minor salivary glands, indicating a benign-to-malignant ratio of 1:0.75.
  • Among the minor salivary sites, palate was the most frequent location, accounting for 51% of the tumors (246 out of 486).
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the most frequent tumor, representing 38% of all tumors (274 out of 713), followed by mucoepidermoid carcinoma 21.6% (154 out of 713) and adenoid cystic carcinoma 13.5% (96 out of 713).
  • The commonest benign and malignant tumors were pleomorphic adenoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma in both major and minor salivary glands.
  • CONCLUSION: According to the findings of this study, equal frequencies of benign and malignant tumors indicate higher occurrences of malignancies, especially in the minor salivary glands, in the Sri Lankan population.

  • [Title] Deregulated expression of p16INK4a and p53 pathway members in benign and malignant myoepithelial tumours of the salivary glands.
  • AIMS: Myoepithelial salivary gland tumours are uncommon and follow an unpredictable biological course.
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Expression of protein (E2F1, p16(INK4a), p53, cyclin D1, Ki67 and Polycomb group proteins BMI-1, MEL-18 and EZH2) was investigated in 49 benign and 30 primary malignant myoepithelial tumours and five histologically benign recurrences by immunohistochemistry and the findings correlated with histopathological characteristics.
  • Benign tumours showed a higher percentage of cells with expression of p16(INK4a) pathway members [p16(INK4a) and E2F1 (both P < 0.001), and cyclin D1, P = 0.002] compared with normal salivary gland.
  • Recurrences displayed more p53 + tumour cells (P = 0.02) than benign primaries.
  • Amongst the benign tumours, the clear cell type had the highest proliferation fraction (P = 0.05) and a higher percentage of EZH2 was detected in the plasmacytoid cell type (P = 0.002).
  • We propose that additional inactivation of p53 in malignant primaries and benign recurrences contributes to myoepithelial neoplastic transformation and aggressive tumour growth.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A case of pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland metastasizing to a mediastinal lymph node.
  • OBJECTIVE: Pleomorphic adenomas are the most common salivary gland tumors and are typically cured with complete surgical excision.
  • There are rare reports, however, in which these histologically benign tumors have inexplicably metastasized to distant sites.
  • The patient's presentation, workup, and final diagnosis of benign metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma will be discussed, along with a pertinent review of the literature.
  • RESULTS: A diagnosis of recurrent pleomorphic adenoma was made from a fine needle aspiration biopsy of the right parotid mass.
  • Examination of the pathology specimens confirmed a diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma in both the parotid bed and the mediastinum.
  • No histologic characteristics of malignancy were seen in either specimen; therefore, a diagnosis of benign metastasizing mixed tumor was rendered.
  • CONCLUSION: Benign metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma is a rare and controversial but distinct clinical entity.
  • Although the definition of the term benign precludes metastatic disease, these tumors do not demonstrate any malignant features yet metastasize to distant sites.
  • It remains to be determined whether these benign metastasizing pleomorphic adenomas are really low-grade salivary malignancies.

  • [Title] Diagnostic difficulties in the interpretation of fine needle aspirate samples in salivary lesions: diagnostic pitfalls revisited.
  • OBJECTIVE: To present our experience in diagnostic errors and pitfalls on aspiration cytology of salivary region in a high volume of cases.
  • STUDY DESIGN: In a retrospective review of cytology files of a head and neck referral center from 1990 to 2005, the false positive and false negative interpretations on fine needle aspiration (FNA) of salivary lesions were retrieved.
  • These records and slides were reviewed to identify cytologic characteristics that contributed to false diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: Of a total of 1,040 salivary FNA samples, 376 cases had a final histologic diagnosis with interpretations of benign or malignant.
  • The sensitivity and specificity for correct interpretation of benign and malignant were 87% and 96%, respectively.
  • Benign cases with false positive diagnosis were Warthin tumor and pleomorphic adenoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Knowledge of cytologic overlaps and pitfalls on salivary gland FNA, as well as clinical and radiologic features, may help clinicians arrive at the appropriate diagnosis and reduce false interpretations.

  • [Title] [Tumors of the parotid gland--management and results of surgical treatment].
  • INTRODUCTION: Tumors of the salivary glands are uncommon and represent 2-4% of head and neck neoplasms.
  • Most tumors originate in the parotid gland, from which 10 to 15% are found to be malignant.
  • Different methods of surgical treatment can be performed depending on the type, localization and size of tumor.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of the medical data of 138 patients with parotid gland tumors who where treated in our departament between 1997-2007 was done.
  • Benign tumors were found in 104 patients with the pleomorphic adenoma as the most common (53 cases).
  • The rest histological type were Whartin's tumor, myoepithelial and basal cell adenoma respectively.
  • The most frequent localization of the tumor after dividing the parotid gland into four parts was postero-inferior pole.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Frequency of tumors of the parotid gland, their histological types and methods of surgical treatment in our data support other studies.
  • Ultrasonography is the key procedure in the diagnosis of tumors of the parotid gland, qualification into surgical treatment and postoperative observation.

  • [Title] Implications of methylation patterns of cancer genes in salivary gland tumors.
  • 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.
  • RASSF1 and RARbeta2 represented 75.8% of methylation events occurring most frequently in salivary duct and acinic cell carcinomas.
  • CONCLUSIONS: (a) Benign and malignant salivary tumors differed in the frequency and pattern of gene methylation;.

  • Non-sebaceous lymphadenoma (NSL) is a rare, recently described, benign salivary gland tumor characterized by a dense lymphoid infiltrate and absence of sebaceous differentiation.
  • The patient was a 50-year-old woman presenting with a slowly growing painless mass in the right parotid gland.
  • The tumor was encapsulated and measured 3 x 2 x 2 cm.
  • Microscopically, the tumor comprised islands of epithelial cells with centrally located duct-like structures within a dense lymphoid stroma.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor regularly expressed CKs 7, 8/18, and 19, which are typical for columnar differentiation and CKs 17 and 5/6, which are most typically expressed in basal cells of complex epithelia.

  • 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 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.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Obligate basal cell component in salivary oncocytoma facilitates distinction from acinic cell carcinoma.
  • The differential diagnosis between benign salivary oncocytoma (ONC) and low-grade malignant acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) can be difficult due to a significant histomorphological overlap of the structural and cytological presentation of both tumor types.
  • To the best of our knowledge a comprehensive study comparing (immuno-)histological markers in cases of difficult differential diagnosis between ONC and ACC has not yet been performed.
  • The statistically significant stronger expression of CK7 in ONC and stronger expression of PAS and alpha-amylase in ACC in routine practice each is hampered by a pronounced overlap between both tumor groups.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: CA is an uncommon benign salivary gland tumor occurring almost exclusively in the intraoral glands.
  • This tumor has often been referred to as a variant of the basal cell adenoma.
  • However, the World Health Organization's latest histological classification of salivary gland tumors recognizes it as a separate entity under the broader heading of monomorphic adenoma, which is not related to any of the subtypes of basal cell adenomas.
  • Microscopic examination confirmed the final diagnosis of CA.
  • The patient is currently free of disease 54 months after surgical excision of the tumor.
  • SUMMARY: Local excision of symptomatic nodules seems to be sufficient to manage patients with multifocal CA.10 But, unlike other benign tumors, CA may need a longer follow-up due to its tendency towards multifocal occurrence and late recurrence.

  • [Title] Neck masses secondary to heterotopic salivary gland tissue: a 25-year experience.
  • OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to review salivary tumors arising from heterotopic salivary inclusions in the periparotid and cervical lymph nodal tissues over a 25-year span.
  • METHODS: A retrospective chart review revealed 24 patients with asymptomatic neck masses treated between 1976 and 2001, whose pathology demonstrated heterotopic salivary tissue or neoplasms arising from heterotopic salivary tissue.
  • RESULTS: Nine cases were benign periparotid lymph nodes with heterotopic salivary inclusions, 3 of which had multimodal involvement.
  • Fifteen cases of heterotopic salivary tumors were identified.
  • The benign tumors were predominantly Warthin's tumor (8) with 1 pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Among the 15 tumor patients, follow-up ranged from 1 month to 17 years.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Heterotopic salivary tissue in periparotid and upper cervical nodes is a more common occurrence than historically recognized.
  • 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.
  • Suggested management, after a thorough clinical exam/needle aspiration biopsy, includes an imaging survey of the parotid gland and neck lymphatics with an appropriate resection to include a simple excision, parotidectomy, neck dissection, and/or irradiation as indicated.
  • Isolated low-grade malignant lesions/benign lesions are adequately managed by excision or parotidectomy alone.

  • [Title] Apparent diffusion coefficients of benign and malignant salivary gland tumors. Comparison to histopathological findings.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of benign and malignant salivary gland tumors in comparison to histopathological findings.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study included 32 patients with a wide spectrum of major salivary gland tumors (17 benign, 15 malignant).
  • Comparisons were made of mean ADC values between benign and malignant tumors, and among tumors showing different degrees of extracellular components.
  • RESULTS: Mean ADC values were 1.09+/-0.34 x 10(-3) mm(2)/s in malignant salivary gland tumors and 1.40+/-0.43 x 10(-3) mm(2)/s in benign salivary gland tumors.
  • No significant difference in mean ADC values was found between benign and malignant tumors (P>0.05).
  • Mean ADC values were significantly different between mild and moderate degrees (P<0.05) of extracellular components, and between mild and conspicuous degrees (P<0.05), in both benign and malignant tumor groups.
  • CONCLUSION: In this study, ADC values alone did not allow differentiation between benign and malignant salivary gland tumors.
  • Comparison with histopathological findings suggests a correlation between the amount of extracellular components and mean ADC values in salivary gland tumors.

  • [Title] Submandibular gland myoepithelioma.
  • Benign myoepithelioma is a very rare form of salivary gland tumor, composed entirely of myoepithelial cells.
  • It accounts for approximately 1% of all salivary gland tumors and is most frequently located in the parotid gland and in the minor salivary glands of the hard palate.
  • We describe herein the ninth reported case of myoepithelioma of the submandibular gland.
  • Benign myoepithelioma must be differentiated from several benign and malignant epithelial and mesenchymal tumors.

  • [Title] The value of fine-needle aspiration cytology in salivary gland lesions, 1994-2004.
  • OBJECTIVE: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of the salivary gland is a commonly accepted, sensitive and specific technique in the diagnosis of both neoplastic and nonneoplastic lesions of the salivary gland.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of FNAC of salivary gland lesions and to decide whether the radiologist could perform it or not.
  • METHODS: We aspirated 162 salivary gland lesions of 56 patients undergoing biopsy and excision.
  • RESULTS: In the present study, among the FNAC performed in 162 patients with salivary gland masses, 15 (9%) were inadequate, and the remaining 147 were diagnostic.
  • With FNAC 45 of the neoplastic lesions were benign and 13 malignant tumors.
  • When cytohistopathological correlation was performed, the overall accuracy in diagnosing benign and malignant lesions was 91 and 78%, respectively, except for 2 malignant lymphoma cases.
  • The sensitivity and specificity for benign and malignant lesions were 72 and 100%, respectively.
  • There was 1 false-positive result, in which a nonneoplastic lesion was misdiagnosed as a Warthin's tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: FNAC is a useful and reliable tool in the diagnosis of salivary gland masses when performed by a radiologist or a clinician.

  • [Title] PLAG1 gene alterations in salivary gland pleomorphic adenoma and carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma: a combined study using chromosome banding, in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma is the most common benign tumor of the salivary glands.
  • In this study, we evaluated PLAG1 involvement in salivary gland tumorigenesis by determining the frequency of its alterations in a selected group of 20 salivary gland tumors: 16 pleomorphic adenomas and four carcinomas ex-pleomorphic adenoma, having in common the presence of karyotypic chromosome 8 deviations, either structural, with 8q12 rearrangements, or numerical, with gain of chromosome 8.
  • This finding further supports the pluripotent single-cell theory, which postulates that the tumor-initiated, modified myoepithelial cell, evolves into the varied somatic cell phenotypes present in pleomorphic adenoma, and reinforces the role of PLAG1 on the tumorigenesis of benign and malignant pleomorphic adenoma.

  • [Title] Salivary tumors in north Jordanians: a descriptive study.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the types and distribution of tumors of salivary glands in north Jordanians.
  • STUDY DESIGN: The records of the Department of Pathology at Jordan University of Science and Technology were reviewed for patients who were treated for salivary gland tumors from 1991 to 2002.
  • The tumors were analyzed for age of patient, sex of patient, tumor site, and tumor type.
  • RESULTS: One hundred two true neoplasms (70% benign and 30% malignant) were found.
  • The most frequent benign and malignant neoplasms found were pleomorphic adenoma (54%) and adenoid cystic carcinoma (13%), respectively.
  • The most common major and minor salivary gland sites were the parotid (51%) and palatal glands (20%), respectively.
  • Although most of major gland tumors were adenomas, carcinomas of the minor glands were only slightly less frequent than adenomas.
  • The most frequent minor salivary gland malignant tumors were palatal adenoid cystic carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: North Jordanians with salivary gland tumors were found to have similar characteristics with patients of other countries with regard to tumor type, tumor site distribution, and age and sex of patients.

  • [Title] Comprehensive loss of heterozygosity analysis and identification of a novel hotspot at 3p21 in salivary gland neoplasms.
  • OBJECTIVES: We sought to assess loss of heterozygosity (LOH) profiles of 3p, 6q, 8q, 10q, 12q, 13q, and 17p and to identify the tumor suppressor genes involved in salivary gland neoplasms.
  • STUDY DESIGN: LOH analysis was performed using 26 microsatellite markers by polymerase chain reaction-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis method in 20 benign and 6 malignant salivary gland tumors.
  • RESULTS: Overall, LOH was detected in at least one informative locus in 18 of 20 (90%) of benign tumors and in all of 6 cases of malignant tumors.
  • High LOH frequencies were revealed at the loci D3S1307 (22%, 3p26), D3S966 (41%, 3p21), D6S255 (27%, 6q25), D8S166 (25%, 8q12), D8S199 (21%, 8q24), and D10S1765 (28%, 10q23) in benign tumors, defining the hotspot regions for putative tumor suppressor genes.
  • CONCLUSIONS AND SIGNIFICANCE: The hotspot regions defined by the present study suggest that new tumor suppressor genes related to the development of salivary gland tumors may reside at several chromosomal loci, including loci at 3p, 6q, 8q and 10q.

  • [Title] Endoscopic endonasal surgery for resection of benign sinonasal tumors: experience with 105 patients.
  • OBJECTIVE: To report our experience with endoscopic surgery of benign tumors and tumor-like conditions of the nose and paranasal sinuses.
  • METHODS: The medical records of 105 patients with benign sinonasal tumor, who had undergone endoscopic surgery for removal of their neoplasm between 1997 and 2003, were retrospectively studied.
  • RESULTS: The studied patients included 32 with juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, 24 with inverted papilloma, 23 with benign fibroosseous lesions, 18 with pyogenic granuloma, 6 with intranasal hemangioma, and 2 with pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Eight cases of recurrent tumor--2 angiofibroma, 4 inverted papilloma, 1 fibrous dysplasia, and 1 osteoma--were noted and managed endoscopically alone or in combination with Caldwell-Luc approach.
  • CONCLUSION: Endoscopic surgery is a valuable tool for removal of benign tumors of the nose and paranasal sinuses in the hands of an experienced surgeon.

  • [Title] Unilateral parotid gland involvement with synchronous multiple Basal cell adenomas.
  • Basal cell adenoma (BCA) is a rare benign epithelial tumor of the salivary gland.
  • BCA is seen most frequently in the parotid gland and less commonly in the submandibular gland and minor glands of the upper lips, oral cavity, and hard palate.
  • 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.
  • Physical examination revealed two solid and well-delineated masses in the preauricular region, which were 1.5 x 1 cm in diameter and in the tail of the parotid gland, which is 2.5 x 2 cm in diameter.
  • Excision of the superficial lobe of the parotid gland was performed.
  • Multiple synchronous nonmembranous-type BCAs of the unilateral parotid gland is a rare entity.
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: Fine needle aspiration (FNA) is an accurate, cost-effective tool for the study of salivary gland lesions.
  • Although complications are extremely rare, salivary gland FNA can lead to hemorrhage, facial nerve injury, and cellulitis at the needle puncture site.
  • Some studies suggest that FNA can cause infarction or metaplastic transformation of benign Warthin's tumors.
  • We review our recent experience with FNA of the parotid gland, focusing on possible complications and pitfalls.
  • STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: The medical records of all patients who underwent FNA of the parotid gland from 2000 to 2002 in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery of a major tertiary-care referral center were reviewed.
  • Cytological results were compared to the histological diagnosis and complications were recorded.
  • 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.
  • Our findings indicate that FNA is a strong and reliable tool in the investigation of the salivary glands.
  • 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.

  • The goal of parapharyngeal space (PPS) tumor surgery is to obtain adequate visualization to ensure complete removal with preservation of the surrounding nerves and vessels.
  • Transoral approach is the most controversial one due to cited limited exposure, risk of tumor spillage, and possibility of neurovascular injury.
  • Majority of treated tumors were pleomorphic adenomas (14 minor salivary gland and 7 deep lobe parotid gland tumors).
  • Two cases of malignant salivary gland tumors, 4 nerve sheath tumors and 1 lymphangioma were also excised.
  • Mean tumor size was 6.1 cm (range 2-11 cm).
  • It can be combined with external approach to achieve safe resection of some benign tumors which would need transmandibular approach.

  • The diagnosis of myoepithelial (ME) tumors outside salivary glands remains challenging, especially in unusual clinical presentations, such as bone or visceral locations.
  • A EWSR1-POU5F1 fusion was identified in a pediatric soft tissue tumor by 3'Rapid Amplification of cDNA Euds (RACE) and subsequently confirmed in four additional soft tissue tumors in children and young adults.
  • An EWSR1-PBX1 fusion was seen in five cases, whereas EWSR1-ZNF444 and FUS gene rearrangement was noted in one pulmonary tumor each.
  • In conclusion, EWSR1 gene rearrangement is a common event in ME tumors arising outside salivary glands, irrespective of anatomical location.
  • EWSR1-negative tumors were more often benign, superficially located, and showed ductal differentiation, suggesting the possibility of genetically distinct groups.
  • These findings do not support a pathogenetic relationship between soft tissue ME tumors and their salivary gland counterparts.

  • [Title] Sebaceous adenoma of the parotid gland.
  • Tumors of the salivary glands constitute an important field of oral and maxillofacial pathology.
  • The majority of salivary gland neoplasms are benign, with malignant salivary tumors accounting for 15 to 32 percent.
  • The most common site for salivary gland tumors is the parotid gland, accounting up to 80 percent of all cases.
  • This article reports the pathologic picture in a case of sebaceous adenoma of the parotid gland.
  • The tumor was composed of epithelial cells lining ducts and closely associated with broad areas of sebaceous differentiation.
  • The presence of sebaceous glands in salivary neoplasms is frequent, however, and in spite of this, salivary neoplasms constituted partially or entirely of these cells are rarely observed.

  • [Title] Primary salivary gland tumors in eastern Nepal tertiary care hospital.
  • BACKGROUND: The knowledge of the distribution and pattern of salivary gland tumors in the tertiary care center can provide overview of the disease pattern in the region.
  • METHODS: A retrospective observational study of all the salivary gland tumors treated in the department of Otolaryngology, B. P.
  • Age, sex, presenting features, radiological findings, histopathological type of the tumor and type of surgery were recorded and descriptive analysis was done to calculate frequencies, percentage and their relations.
  • RESULTS: Out of total 51 cases, 81% (n=41) were benign and 19% (n=10) malignant tumors.
  • Mean age for benign and malignant tumors were 32.3 and 46.5 years respectively.
  • Parotid tumor outnumbered all other sites comprising 69%, followed by submandiibular 18% and minor glands 13%.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the commonest tumor (76%) of all primary salivary gland tumors.
  • Benign to malignant tumor ratio of parotid, submandibular and minor glands were 6:1, 3.5:1 and 1.3:1 respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The principal site for salivary gland tumors in eastern Nepal population was the parotid and the pleomorphic adenoma outnumbered all other tumors.
  • Most of the cases in both benign and malignant group presented with painless lump often misleading the gravity of disease.

  • [Title] Immunohistochemical analysis of P(53) and bcl-2 in benign and malignant salivary glands tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Salivary glands tumors are relatively uncommon neoplasm with widely variable histopathologic and biologic characteristics.
  • 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.
  • RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Pleomorphic adenoma (PA) showed negative expression of P(53) and bcl-2 in 70% of cases, whereas all malignant salivary glands tumors were positive for P(53) and bcl-2.
  • P(53)/bcl-2 immunostaining reactivity could be helpful in demonstrating salivary glands tumor behavior in terms of progression and extent of invasion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • This article reviews the utility of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of treatment response in tumors arising in the head and neck region.
  • The ADC value also discriminates carcinomas from lymphomas, benign lesions from malignant tumors and tumor necrosis from abscesses.
  • These promising reports indicate the potential of DWI as a potential biomarker for diagnosis and monitoring of treatment response in head and neck cancers.
  • In view of the overlapping ADC values between different salivary gland tumors, care should be taken when interpreting these results and other imaging parameters should be considered for a better diagnosis.

  • CONTEXT: Fine-needle aspiration of salivary gland lesions can be particularly challenging for pathologists.
  • OBJECTIVE: To present and discuss a practical pattern recognition approach to fine-needle aspiration diagnosis, which includes categorizing lesions that share a certain overall cytologic architectural pattern, followed by identifying unique cellular characteristics that are specific to a certain lesion.
  • An extensive discussion of one cytologic common pattern of salivary gland lesions, "epithelioid cell clusters with an extensive lymphoid background," is presented.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A practical cytologic architectural pattern method can aid the pathologist in rendering a correct diagnosis when evaluating salivary gland lesions.
  • One common pattern in salivary gland cytopathology is epithelioid cell clusters with an extensive lymphoid background.
  • This pattern is often associated with Warthin tumor; however, other benign and malignant entities fall under this diagnostic group.

  • [Title] [Surgical management of minor salivary gland tumors].
  • OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical features of minor salivary gland tumors and to discuss the treatment modalities for these tumors.
  • METHOD: Retrospective analysis of 54 cases with minor salivary gland tumor operated in our hospital from 1997 to 2004.
  • RESULT: Among 54 cases with minor salivary gland tumors in this series, 16 patients lost of follow up.
  • 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.
  • CONCLUSION: While different histopathology of minor salivary gland tumors were found in this group, malignant tumors were predominant, accounting for 81.4%.
  • The choice of treatment for minor salivary gland tumors depends upon the location and the histopathology of the tumors.
  • 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.

  • [Title] CT features of parotid gland oncocytomas: a study of 10 cases and literature review.
  • Oncocytomas of the salivary glands are rare benign epithelial tumors which occur most commonly in the parotid gland.
  • The CT features of parotid oncocytomas in the largest imaging series of this rare but important benign lesion include a well-defined enhancing tumor with a "deformable" appearance when large, and a non-enhancing curvilinear cleft or cystic component.
  • These CT findings are potentially helpful in distinguishing these benign lesions from other parotid tumors in clinical scenarios that preclude surgical resection or when biopsy results are non-diagnostic.

  • [Title] Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection within parotid gland Warthin tumor.
  • Tuberculosis of the parotid gland is extremely unusual.
  • Tuberculosis comprises 2.5% to 10% of parotid gland lesions.
  • Two clinical forms of parotid gland tuberculosis infection exist.
  • The second is a chronic, slow-growing, painless, and firm parotid mass mimicking a neoplasm.
  • Most of these patients were diagnosed after parotid gland surgery and histopathologic evaluation.
  • Warthin tumor is a well-known benign neoplasm of the salivary glands.
  • It is the second most common tumor of the parotid gland.
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis within Warthin tumor is also unusual.
  • Five cases with parotid gland tuberculosis within Warthin tumor were reported in the literature.
  • In this report, we present a new patient with parotid gland tuberculosis within the Warthin tumor.

  • [Title] Spontaneous infarction of a pleomorphic adenoma in parotid gland: diagnostic problems and review.
  • Although infarction of parotid gland pleomorphic adenoma (PA) following fine-needle aspiration (FNA) has been well-documented, spontaneous infarction of PA has remained as an uncommon entity in the literature.
  • To our knowledge, we report the second case of spontaneous infarction occurring in a parotid gland PA.
  • Although appears to be rare, spontaneous infarction of PA should be considered in the differential diagnosis, since necrosis may mimic carcinoma and cause misinterpretation of necrosis as an indication of malignancy, in an otherwise benign salivary gland neoplasm.

  • Ceruminal glands are modified sweat glands of the skin of the external auditory meatus that may give rise to (a) benign tumors such as ceruminous adenoma, pleomorphic adenoma, and syringocystadenoma papilliferum, and (b) malignant tumors such as ceruminous adenocarcinoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
  • An alternative theory holds that pleomorphic adenomas may well arise from ectopic salivary tissue present in the external ear canal.
  • These tumors are very rare and usually have a benign course.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging showed no intracranial extension or any association with the adjacent parotid gland.
  • The patient underwent modified radical mastoidectomy and complete resection of the tumor and the entire skin of the external auditory canal.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pleomorphic adenoma is an extremely rare tumor arising from the ceruminal glands of the external ear canal.
  • Nonspecific presentation and difficult histologic diagnosis characterize this benign neoplasm.

  • [Title] Down regulation and nuclear localization of human beta-defensin-1 in pleomorphic adenomas of salivary glands.
  • Although antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) appear to have diverse functional activities in innate immunity, a few reports suggest a potential role of human beta-defensin (hBD)-1 in tumor suppression.
  • The aim of the present study was to compare the expression patterns of hBD-1, -2 and -3 in various features of human salivary gland tissues, such as healthy parenchyma, chronic sialadenitis and intraglandular pleomorphic adenomas, with their adjacent normal tissues.
  • Twenty human salivary gland specimens (five healthy, five chronic sialadenitis, five pleomorphic adenomas and five adenoma adjacent normal tissues (AANTs)) were investigated for mRNA expression levels of hBD-1, -2 and -3 by quantitative real-time RT-PCR.
  • Considerably increased, 80-fold higher hBD-1 and increased hBD-3 mRNA expression levels compared to healthy salivary gland tissues were detected in chronic sialadenitis.
  • Interestingly, the AANTs showed a 48-fold higher expression of hBD-1 and increased hBD-3 expression compared to the healthy salivary gland.
  • These data support the hypothesis that hBD-1 might be a potential tumor suppressor also in benign salivary gland tumors in addition to other genetic alterations.

  • The data collected comprised patient age and sex, the clinical characteristics and location of the tumor, the duration of the lesion, its size, the treatment provided, and the histopathological findings.
  • The great majority (94.4%) were benign tumors.
  • The histopathological diagnoses of our MSGTs comprised 10 pleomorphic adenomas (55.3%), 2 cystadenomas (11.1%), 1 myoepithelioma (5.6%), 1 sialadenoma papilliferum (5.6%), 1 basal cell adenoma (5.6%), 1 Warthin's tumor (5.6%), 1 canalicular adenoma (5.6%), and 1 low-grade polymorphic adenocarcinoma (5.6%).
  • Six percent of all benign minor salivary gland tumors are considered to relapse, versus 65% of all malignant lesions.

  • [Title] [Treatment of giant tumors of the parotid gland].
  • Since large (<<giant>>) benign mixed tumors of the parotid gland are rare, there is insufficient evidence on the modalities of the facial nerve management.
  • Tumors were located externally of the gland (5), parapharyngeally (2), or both (1).
  • The regularities between the facial nerve location and site of tumor were investigated, and it is suggested that, in difficult cases, search should start from the temporal area since it offers most access.
  • When tumor of parapharyngeal localization is excised, it is desirable to perform double osteotomy in the mental part of the mandible as well as at the point of entry of the lower of the alveolar nerve, to avoid the latter's being traumatized.

  • We report a series of three cases of pleomorphic adenoma with extensive lipometaplasia, a recently described subtype of pleomorphic adenoma of salivary gland origin.
  • Two occurred in the minor salivary glands of the lip and palate, respectively, and one in the parotid.
  • The differential diagnosis, as it pertains to other fat-containing tumors (such as lipoadenoma, spindle cell lipoma, interstitial lipomatosis, and benign mesenchymoma), is discussed.
  • It is likely that the ability of myoepithelial cells to undergo various metaplasias is the cause of the unusual histologic appearances of this tumor.

  • [Title] Neither MRI, CT nor US is superior to diagnose tumors in the salivary glands--an extended case study.
  • OBJECTIVES: Ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the most common radiological procedures for the diagnosis of tumor-like lesions of the salivary glands.
  • STUDY DESIGN/METHODS: 109 patients with a tumor-like lesion of the salivary glands underwent surgery.
  • In respect of the radiological assessment of the lesion (benign/malignant) and the correct diagnosis, CT, MRI and US were comparable in terms of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy.

  • [Title] Basal cell adenoma versus pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland: CT findings.
  • OBJECTIVE: Basal cell adenoma is a rare benign epithelial tumor of the salivary gland.
  • We also compare CT findings of basal cell adenoma with those of pleomorphic adenoma, the most common parotid tumor, to determine whether any features on CT can help differentiate these two entities.
  • CONCLUSION: Basal cell adenomas of the parotid gland are located chiefly in the superficial lobe.
  • The age of the patient and the attenuation on unenhanced and contrast-enhanced CT may help in differentiating basal cell adenoma from pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland.

  • Pleomorphic adenoma is the commonest benign salivary gland tumour, accounting for almost three fourths of all such tumours.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma most commonly occurs in the parotid gland; however it is also encountered in the submandibular, sublingual and minor salivary glands.Almost half of all salivary gland tumours are malignant, pleomorphic adenoma is the commonest benign lesion.A case of pleomorphic adenoma arising denovo in the minor salivary glands is discussed.

  • [Title] [Clinical features and therapy of benign lymphoepithelial lesion].
  • OBJECTIVE: To report the clinical features of benign lymphoepithelial lesion and to further characterize recommendations for its therapy strategy.
  • Retrospective analyze the clinical characteristics, imaging features, pathological manifestation and the treatment effect from the clinical materials of 9 cases of patients with benign lymphoepithelial lesion presenting to Tianjin Eye Hospital from Jan 2006 to Dec 2007.
  • RESULTS: The 9 cases, in which 7 cases were female, 7 cases had lesions on both eyes, demonstrated unpainful swelling of the lacrimal glands and in different degree of salivary glands or had history of tumor resection of salivary glands.
  • Orbital CT scanning showed increased homogeneous density with clear boundary in the lacrimal gland area.
  • Color doppler ultrasonography displayed elliptical space occupying with clear boundary and homogeneous internal echos of the lacrimal gland area.
  • Three patients were operated to excise the lacrimal gland masses due to imperfect treatment effect of medication or in order to make definite diagnosis.
  • The postoperative pathological results supported the diagnosis of benign lymphoepithelial lesion.
  • CONCLUSIONS: A clinical condition with swelling of either or both lacrimal gland and of any salivary gland, and accompanied with systemic relative diseases should be considered benign lymphoepithelial lesion.
  • Imaging examinations are helpful to definite diagnosis.
  • The definite diagnosis should be made through pathological examinations.

  • [Title] Diffusion-weighted echo-planar MR imaging of primary parotid gland tumors: is a prediction of different histologic subtypes possible?
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Our aim was to determine the value of echo-planar diffusion-weighted MR imaging (epiDWI) in differentiating various types of primary parotid gland tumors.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred forty-nine consecutive patients with suspected tumors of the parotid gland were examined with an epiDWI sequence by using a 1.5T unit.
  • Histologic diagnosis was obtained in every patient.
  • RESULTS: In 136 patients, a primary parotid gland tumor was confirmed by histology.
  • ADC values of Warthin tumors were different from those of myoepithelial adenomas, lipomas, and salivary duct carcinomas (P < .001, 0.013, and .037, 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.

  • [Title] An intracapsular carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma with lung metastases composed exclusively of benign elements: histological evidence of a continuum between metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma and carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Malignant mixed tumors of the salivary glands, encompassing carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (ca ex PA), carcinosarcoma and metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma (mPA), are rare neoplasms.
  • When the malignant component does not breach the capsule of the parent PA, the lesion is termed intracapsular ca ex PA, a neoplasm which is thought to have no metastatic potential.
  • Metastatic deposits of ca ex PA are composed exclusively of malignant elements or mixed benign and malignant components.
  • The metastatic deposits resembled benign PA with no histological evidence of malignancy.
  • This pattern of spread is described with mPA, an entity that caused controversy in the past regarding its exact classification as a benign or malignant tumor.

  • In this study, various confirmed benign and malignant salivary gland tumors underwent a known histochemical silver staining method involving nuclear-associated proteins with diagnostic and prognostic capacity in other malignant tumors.
  • The study examined the methods' ability to differentiate between benign and malignant salivary gland tumors and between different histopathological grades of malignant tumors, and sought correlations between the staining results and staging, metastatic disease and survival.
  • This article highlights the growing awareness of pathologists and oral pathologists in developing countries to the uniqueness of salivary gland tumors, and demonstrates their understanding of the importance of both early detection and appropriate treatment.

  • [Title] Intraoral minor salivary gland tumors: a review of 75 cases in a Libyan population.
  • Minor salivary gland carcinomas are uncommon but most often occur in the oral cavity, particularly the hard palate.
  • During the period of 1977-2000 a group of 75 patients (31 males and 44 females, median age 44.2 years and range 15-86 years) with minor salivary gland tumors were diagnosed, based on the 1991 WHO classification.
  • The frequency of benign tumors was 38.6% (n = 29) and malignant tumors 61.3% (n = 46).
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the most common histological type of benign tumor identified whereas mucoepidermoid carcinoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma were the most common malignant tumors.
  • A benign tumor usually presented as an asymptomatic swelling and ulceration, pain being more frequently associated with the malignant tumors.
  • This study shows that intraoral tumors of minor salivary glands vary widely in presentation, and should be taking into account by medical and dental practitioners in any differential diagnosis when assessing intraoral pathology.
  • Any lesion arising from the hard palate (the most common site in this series) should be considered as a possible minor salivary gland tumor.
  • Referral to a multidisciplinary head and neck clinic following diagnosis is strongly recommended.

  • [Title] Beta-6 Integrin, tenascin-C, and MMP-1 expression in salivary gland neoplasms.
  • The objective of this study was to determine whether there is overexpression of these molecules in three types of salivary neoplasms showing markedly different behavior.
  • Staining was graded as 0 (<1% positive tumor cells), 1+ (<25% positive tumor cells), 2+ (25-50% positive tumor cells), and 3+ (>50% positive cells).
  • The results showed that the malignant tumors were higher expressors of beta-6 than the benign tumors.
  • No significant difference was observed between ACCs and PLGAs. beta-6 expression was rarely seen in normal salivary gland epithelium and was occasionally present in mucosa overlying the tumors.
  • A majority of tumors in all three tumor types showed high expression of MMP1 with expression significantly greater in the PAs compared to ACCs (p=0.008).
  • We conclude that ACCs and PLGAs express beta-6, tenascin-C, and MMP-1, but that their expression patterns are not significantly different. beta-6 appears to be more closely associated with the malignant tumors, and MMP-1 more closely associated with the benign tumors.
  • We believe that beta-6, tenascin-C, and MMP-1 proteins are part of the molecular repertoire used by salivary tumors for malignant invasion and benign tumor expansion.

  • Myofibroma is a benign mesenchymal neoplasm composed of myofibroblasts which has been described with different synonyms since the first report in 1951.
  • Differential diagnosis included benign and malignant mesenchymal neoplasms, salivary gland tumors, and reactive processes.
  • Microscopic analysis of both lesions revealed a spindle cell tumor with immunoreactivity for vimentin, muscle-specific actin, and specific smooth muscle isoform alpha-actin, rendering the diagnoses of myofibroma.
  • Myofibroma presents a wide range of differential diagnosis, including benign and malignant neoplasms.
  • Therefore, accurate diagnosis may avoid an unnecessary aggressive therapy.

  • [Title] Kaposi's sarcoma of an intraparotid lymph node leading to a diagnosis of HIV.
  • OBJECTIVE: Kaposi's sarcoma is a common malignancy in patients infected with HIV but is rarely seen in the major salivary glands.
  • If a patient is known to be HIV-positive, however, Kaposi's sarcoma must be considered in the differential diagnosis of salivary gland masses in addition to the benign and malignant neoplasms that occur in immunocompetent patients.
  • We present a unique case in which an otherwise healthy patient was diagnosed with HIV after resection of his enlarged parotid gland revealed Kaposi's sarcoma.
  • The patient's presentation, workup, and final diagnosis of Kaposi's sarcoma are discussed.
  • The patient underwent a right superficial parotidectomy for a suspected diagnosis of Warthin's tumor, given the bilaterality of the lesions.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although Kaposi's sarcoma is common in AIDS patients, there are few case reports of this malignancy arising in the salivary glands.
  • Previously reported cases include salivary gland Kaposi's sarcoma in known HIV-positive patients and a handful of reports in patients without confirmed immunocompromise.
  • The patient presented here is unique because the diagnosis of parotid gland Kaposi's sarcoma led to a new diagnosis of HIV.
  • This interesting case reiterates the need for complete history taking and the inclusion of Kaposi's sarcoma in the differential diagnosis of salivary gland masses in the appropriate patient population.

  • [Title] Fine-needle aspiration cytology of salivary gland lesions: a systematic review.
  • PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to provide a systematic review of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology on salivary gland lesions.
  • RESULTS: Of the patients, 484 received a histological diagnosis of malignant tumor; cytological diagnosis was concordant in 387 (79.95%), discordant in 97 (20.04%).
  • A total of 1,275 patients received a histological diagnosis of benign tumor; cytological diagnosis was concordant in 1,219 (95.608%) and discordant in 56 (4.39%).
  • In all, 154 patients received a histological diagnosis of non-neoplastic lesion; cytological diagnosis was concordant in 145 (94.156%) and discordant in 9 (5.84%).
  • CONCLUSION: FNA is a safe diagnostic tool that has a reliable sensitivity and specificity for the assessment of salivary gland pathology.

  • [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.
  • An excisional biopsy of the swelling was performed, and the histologic diagnosis of pilomatrixoma was made.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma, also called benign mixed tumor, is the most common tumor of the salivary glands.
  • About 90% of these tumors occur in the parotid gland and 10% in the minor salivary glands.
  • The most common sites of pleomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary glands are the palates followed by lips and cheeks.
  • Here we report a case of pleomorphic adenoma of minor salivary glands of the cheek in a 17-year-old girl.
  • To conclude, pleomorphic adenoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cheek masses in youngsters.

  • Patients Thirty-five patients with a parotid gland benign tumor were randomly allocated to 2 superficial lobe parotidectomy groups: 17 using the LigaSure procedure (group A) and 18 using the conventional method (group B).
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: During the past few years, different methods of achieving hemostasis in parotid gland surgery have been tested as means of decreasing operative time and facial nerve injuries by controlling bleeding.
  • With the whole LigaSure Vessel Sealing System, we experienced the usefulness of the LigaSure Precise instrument in superficial lobectomy of the parotid gland.
  • RESULTS: No statistically significant differences were noted between the 2 groups in mean age, tumor diameter, length of hospital stay, time to return to work, or number of adverse events during or after surgery.
  • Salivary fistulas were more common in group A (3 of 17 patients), with no cases in group B.

  • These cells are placed at the interface between luminal epithelial cells and the stromal compartment, which favors their cross-talk with all other cell types comprising the tumor micro-environment.
  • To obtain some clues about this cross-talk and also to better understand our previous immunoprofile study of myoepithelial cells in salivary gland carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA), we investigated FGF-2 expression in CXPA in situ structures as well as in cells cultured under conditions attempting to simulate the cellular interactions of this tumor stage.
  • In addition, our results supported by qPCR and Western blotting, demonstrated that the expression of FGF-2 in the benign myoepithelial cells was in fact increased by stimulation with the conditioned medium from malignant cells.
  • Low molecular weight FGF-2, known to be primarily released from the cells to exert its biological activity through receptors, was the predominant FGF-2 form detected in the benign myoepithelial cells.
  • Specific FGF-2 receptors were found in the malignant epithelial but not in the benign myo-epithelial cells of CXPA, indicating a paracrine role for benign myoepithelial cell-derived FGF-2.
  • Abnormal paracrine myo-epithelial/epithelial cell interactions and also myoepithelial/ stromal cell interactions could favor tumor growth, invasion and metastasis.

  • [Title] Fine needle aspiration cytology of oncocytic lipoadenoma of the parotid gland: report of a rare case.
  • BACKGROUND: Oncocytic lipoadenoma is an uncommon benign salivary gland tumor.
  • CASE: A 50-year-old woman presented with a slow-growing swelling in the left parotid region that was clinically interpreted as a soft tissue tumor, with a differential of neurofibroma/lipoma.
  • The adipose tissue background of the cytologic smears was ignored as material derived from the normal fat tissue; based on the oncocytic population of cells, a diagnosis of oncocytoma was considered.
  • However, histopathologic examination showed it to be an oncocytic lipoadenoma, a tumor we were unaware of at the time of cytodiagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Both cytopathologists and histopathologists need to be aware of oncocytic lipoadenoma of the salivary gland in order to diagnose it precisely.
  • The clinicocytopathologic correlation highlighted in our case will be useful for cytopathologists in preoperative interpretation and diagnosis.

  • [Title] Detection of C-KIT (CD117) molecule in benign and malignant salivary gland tumours.
  • In the present study we analysed the expression of this molecule in salivary gland tumours.
  • Archival formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of 40 benign and 57 malignant salivary gland tumours were retrieved and retrospectively studied immunohistochemically using a polyclonal C-KIT antibody in an Envision/HRP technique.
  • In addition five samples of chronic submandibular sialadenitis, five normal minor salivary glands and parotid or submandibular gland tissue adjacent to benign tumour were also studied.
  • C-KIT expression was observed in cases of adenoid cystic, acinic cell polymorphous low grade, epithelial-myoepithelial, carcinosarcoma and basal cell adenocarcinomas, as in luminal cells of pleomorphic adenomas, in serous acinar and only in intercalated and a small number of striated ductal cells of inflammatory salivary gland tissue, whereas normal salivary lobules were generally negative except a weak positivity of intercalated cells.
  • Contrary to other reports, this study suggests that, C-KIT protein does not appear to be an exclusively specific marker for benign or malignant salivary gland neoplasms, but may be useful in differential diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma from polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma.
  • Furthermore its expression in serous acinar cells in sialadenitis and intercalated ductal cells in normal and inflammatory lesions may indicate a possible participation in pathogenesis of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic salivary gland diseases.

  • Cystadenocarcinoma is a rare malignant tumor, with an estimated incidence of 2% of malignant salivary gland tumors.
  • Cytological diagnosis of cystadenocarcinoma is important for differential diagnosis between benign lesions and malignant tumors with cystic growth.
  • We report a case of cystadenocarcinoma causing difficulty in cytological diagnosis.
  • A 23-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic mass in the left parotid gland that had been present for 2 years.
  • Preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) showed a small number of tumor cell clusters in the cystic fluid.
  • Tumor cells had a small vacuolated, soap-bubble appearance in the cytoplasm.
  • Histologically, the tumor was not encapsulated, but formed large cystic spaces against a background of fibrous connective tissue.
  • The tumor cells in the cystic dilated duct showed papillary structures, which were continuous with the lining cuboidal cells.
  • As tumor cells with a small vacuolated, soap-bubble appearance of the cytoplasm are common findings of both cystadenocarcinoma and ACC-PCV, they are of little use for differentiation; however, they are so characteristic that the majority of benign salivary gland lesions with cystic structures can be excluded, if enough attention is paid.

  • Lesions that contain abundant benign myoepithelial cells, including pleomorphic adenomas of salivary gland origin, may present a diagnostic challenge in fine-needle aspiration (FNA) specimens.
  • Benign metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma is a rare neoplasm, in which the benign appearing pleomorphic adenoma, without any histological evidence of malignancy, metastasizes to distant sites including lung.
  • In the absence of clinical history of a pre-existing myoepithelial neoplasm, the presence of myoepithelial cells in the lung or any other organs besides salivary glands may create diagnostic difficulty.
  • Here we present the cytologic findings of such a metastatic tumor found in the lung FNA and pleural fluid specimens from a 64-year-old woman, with a history of local recurrent salivary gland pleomorphic adenomas, who presented with multiple bilateral pulmonary nodules and pleural effusion.
  • The diagnosis of benign metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma was made based on clinical information and cytomorphology, and confirmed by immunocytochemistry.

  • Myoepitheliomas of the salivary glands are rare benign tumors composed of spindle-shaped myoepithelial cells, but may show plasmacytoid, epitheloid and clear cell-types that principally exhibit myoepithelial but not ductal differentiation.
  • These tumors are mainly located in the major salivary glands and have sometimes abundant, acellular, mucoid or hyaline stroma but lack chondroid and myxochondroid foci, probably representing the one end of the spectrum of pleomorphic adenoma.
  • Lipomatosis in the form of isolated small islands or scattered single lipocytes, is quite uncommon, and a large amount of adipose tissue in a pleomorphic adenoma and myoepithelioma is a rarity and only described in major salivary glands.
  • We present the case report of a 38-year old man with a myoepithelioma of the minor palatinal salivary glands with extensive lipomatosis as an example of this rare phenomena.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Sex steroid hormone [ie, estrogen (ER), progesterone (PgR), and androgen (AR)] receptors have been identified previously in normal salivary glands and, more variably, in salivary gland and salivary gland-type tumors.
  • No data are available, however, on their expression in pulmonary hamartoma, a benign biphasic tumor consisting of reactive epithelial cells and neoplastic fibromyxoid stroma, cartilage and fat, which shares some morphologic, immunophenotypic, and genotypic features to pleomorphic adenoma of major salivary glands.
  • In conclusion, sex steroid hormone receptor expression is a nonrandom event in pulmonary hamartoma, and may be related to the development and growth of this tumor.

  • [Title] [Basic and clinical research on salivary gland tumors].
  • Salivary gland tumors are a group of the most common tumors in the oral and maxillofacial region.
  • There is little knowledge on the clinicopathologic characteristics and clinical behaviors of salivary gland tumors of various locations and subtype.
  • The management of salivary gland tumors is also controversial.
  • Biopsy is not suggested because of seeding of tumor cells.
  • Therefore adjunctive methods are important for preoperative diagnosis.
  • Since 1985, our research group has performed a series of basic and clinical researches on salivary gland tumors including clinicopathologic characteristics and behavior, preoperative adjunctive diagnosis, mechanism, prevention and treatment of distant metastasis of salivary adenoid cystic carcinoma, and histogenesis of salivary gland tumor.
  • These studies have improved our knowledge on the clinical, histopathological, cytological, imaging features, and bio-behavior of different types of salivary gland tumors.
  • We have also suggested related principles of management, modified the operative methods of benign tumor of parotid gland.
  • Our efforts have raised the standards of diagnosis and treatment of salivary gland tumors.

  • [Title] WIF1, an inhibitor of the Wnt pathway, is rearranged in salivary gland tumors.
  • Here we report the identification of the WNT inhibitory factor 1 (WIF1) gene as a novel HMGA2 fusion partner in a salivary gland pleomorphic adenoma.
  • In normal salivary gland tissue WIF1 is expressed at a high level and HMGA2 is not expressed.
  • We screened 13 additional benign and malignant salivary gland tumors and detected WIF1 rearrangement in one out of two carcinomas ex-pleomorphic adenoma analyzed.
  • In this malignant tumor, the rearrangement of one WIF1 allele coexists with loss of the other allele, a classic signature of a tumor suppressor gene.
  • In transgenic mouse models, Wnt activation leads to a high frequency of benign and malignant salivary gland tumors.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first report suggesting that WIF1 is a recurrent target in human salivary gland oncogenesis and that downregulation of WIF1 plays a role in the development and/or progression of pleomorphic adenomas.

  • [Title] Intraoral approach for the treatment of submandibular salivary gland mixed tumors.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma represents a most common benign neoplasm of major salivary glands.
  • Most occurrences of this benign tumor in the submandibular gland have been treated surgically without difficulty via transcervical approach.
  • In this study, we introduced the intraoral approach for the removal of the submandibular mixed tumor.
  • In total, 12 cases of pleomorphic adenoma of the submandibular gland were treated via intraoral approach.
  • During surgery the tumor and submandibular gland are easily dissected from surrounding tissue and removed through intraoral incision.
  • All patients were followed up for the recurrence of the tumor from 20 months to 10 years.
  • One patient showed a tumor recurrence at the early stage of this approach.
  • We propose that the benign mixed tumor of the submandibular gland could be removed easily via intraoral route without an external scar or nerve injury.

  • MECs, the most common malignancy in salivary glands, were earlier thought to occur only in salivary glands.
  • Later studies showed that they can arise as a primary in bronchus, esophagus, lacrimal glands, pancreas, thymus and thyroid gland.
  • Initially described as a benign adenoma, it is now considered to be a malignant epithelial tumor.

  • [Title] Neoplasms of the salivary glands in a Turkish adult population.
  • OBJECTIVE: This retrospective study aimed to investigate the types and distribution of neoplasm of salivary glands in a Turkish population.
  • STUDY DESIGN: The histological diagnosis records of the Department of Pathology at Cumhuriyet University were reevaluated for 125 patients who were treated for salivary gland tumors from 1987 to 2008.
  • The neoplasms were analyzed for histological diagnosis, age, sex, and site.
  • RESULTS: A total of 125 primary salivary gland neoplasms, consisting of 95 (76%) benign and 30 (24%) malignant groups were recorded.
  • The most common major and minor salivary gland sites were the parotid (61.6%) and palatal glands (9.6%), respectively.
  • Pleomorphic adenoma was the most frequent benign tumor followed by Warthin's tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although there were some discrepancies, the characteristics of salivary gland tumors of Turkish patients are in line with those of patients from other countries according to tumor type, tumor site distribution, and age and sex of patients.
