Two case reports of synchronous unilateral pleomorphic adenoma and cystadenolymphoma of the parotid gland with literature review.

J Ultrason 2018 ;18(75):369-373

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery , Klinikum Augsburg, Augsburg , Germany.

Synchronous unilateral tumors in the parotid glands account for less than 5-10% of all salivary gland neoplasms. Mostly these are cystadenolymphomas, but tumors of different histological types can be found as well. In these cases it is often pleomorphic adenoma in combination with cystadenolymphoma. Read More

Intraparotid Facial Nerve Schwannoma in a Nine-Year-Old Patient: Diagnosis, Classification, and Surgical Approach Stages.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Pathology, The Ministry of Health Izmir Tepecik Training and Research Hospital, Izmir, Turkey.

Intraparotid facial nerve schwannoma (IFNS) is rarely observed in children compared with adults. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. After radiological imaging and fine needle aspiration biopsy, an IFNS diagnosis may be skipped and confused with pleomorphic adenoma, which has a high prevalence among patients who have a mass in the parotid gland.

VTIQ and VTQ in combination with B-mode and color Doppler ultrasound improve classification of salivary gland tumors, especially for inexperienced physicians.

Clin Hemorheol Microcirc 2018 Oct 16. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Radiology, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Munich, Germany.

Background: Ultrasound is the method of choice for preoperative evaluation of masses of the parotid glands. However, existing methods do not allow for definite differentiation between the most common benign and malignant tumors.

Objective: Thus, we evaluated the benefits of Virtual Touch Quantification (VTQ) and Virtual Touch imaging quantification (VTIQ) for improving preoperative evaluation of parotid tumors. Read More

Al-Sabah Hospital, Ministry of Health, Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is a rare disease in the parotid gland with a poor prognosis in most cases. The disease most often develops in the setting of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) but can also occur sporadically.

Pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling MR images in Warthin tumors and pleomorphic adenomas of the parotid gland: qualitative and quantitative analyses and their correlation with histopathologic and DWI and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI findings.

Neuroradiology 2018 Aug 2;60(8):803-812. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Division of Surgical Pathology, University of Fukui Hospital, 23-3 Matsuoka-Shimoaizuki, Eiheiji-cho, Fukui, 910-1193, Japan.

Purpose: We investigated the correlation between tumor blood flow (TBF) and histopathologic features of Warthin tumors (WTs) and pleomorphic adenomas (PAs) to determine the TBF in the differential diagnosis of these tumors and evaluated how well pCASL-MRI can differentiate PAs from WTs compared to conventional MRI.

Methods: The ADC, time intensity curve (TIC) pattern of dynamic contrast enhancement, and pCASL (visual assessment and TBF of the MR images of 10 WTs and 13 PAs) were reviewed. We compared the pCASL and ADC or TIC patterns in WT and PA images. Read More

Metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma in the multiple organs: A case report on FDG-PET/CT imaging.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jun;97(23):e11077

Department of Pathology, The Cancer Institute Hospital of JFCR, Tokyo, Japan.

Rationale: Pleomorphic adenoma, the most common tumor of the salivary glands, is usually benign. It is well known, however, that pleomorphic adenomas occasionally undergo malignant transformation to carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma and can metastasize. More rarely pleomorphic adenomas can metastasize without histological malignant transformation. Read More

68Ga-DOTA-TOC Uptake in Pleomorphic Adenoma.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Jul;43(7):524-525

From the Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine and.

A 56-year-old man who was recently diagnosed with a carcinoid tumor of the os petrosum was referred for a Ga-DOTA-TOC PET/CT scan. Besides the moderately increased Ga-DOTA-TOC accumulation in the carcinoid tumor, the scan showed strongly increased and focal Ga-DOTA-TOC uptake in an additional lesion in the right parotid gland. The markedly different Ga-DOTA-TOC avidity suggested a different etiology, and histological examination demonstrated a pleomorphic adenoma. Read More

Usefulness of a Novel Ultrasonographic Classification Based on Anechoic Area Patterns for Differentiating Warthin Tumors from Pleomorphic Adenomas of the Parotid Gland.

Yonago Acta Med 2017 Dec 5;60(4):220-226. Epub 2018 Feb 5.

Division of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Department of Sensory and Motor Organs, School of Medicine, Tottori University Faculty of Medicine, Yonago 683-8503, Japan.

Background: Ultrasonographic homogeneity is an important differential finding between Warthin tumor and pleomorphic adenoma, two types of benign parotid gland tumors, with the former likely to be heterogeneous and the latter homogeneous. However, differences in the performance of ultrasound machines or the homogeneity cut-off level affect the judgment of ultrasonographic homogeneity. Therefore, in this study, we adopted a novel system for classifying the composition of tumors via ultrasonography, using anechoic area as a substitute for differences in homogeneity to differentiate between Warthin tumors and pleomorphic adenomas.

The differential diagnosis of parotid gland tumors with high-resolution ultrasound in otolaryngological practice.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2017 Aug 13;274(8):3231-3240. Epub 2017 Jun 13.

Department of Otolaryngology, Warsaw Medical University, ul. Banacha 1a, 02-097, Warsaw, Poland.

The aim of the study is to define the utility of ultrasound (US) in differentiating benign from malignant parotid tumors as well as pleomorphic adenomas (PA) from monomorphic adenoma (MA). Seventy-two consecutive parotid gland tumors were analysed with high-resolution ultrasonography (12 MHz) with color Doppler imagining. The histopathological diagnosis was confirmed after parotidectomy for each lesion. Read More

Role of Computed Tomography (CT) in Localisation and Characterisation of Suprahyoid Neck Masses.

Pol J Radiol 2017 13;82:263-270. Epub 2017 May 13.

Department of Orthopedics, Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and Hospital, Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot, Punjab, India.

Background: Suprahyoid neck lesions are difficult to assess only by means of clinical inspection and therefore imaging techniques are required to precisely evaluate suprahyoid neck spaces. The aim of this study was to evaluate the distinctive role of computed tomography in the assessment of anatomical source and pathological type of masses involving the suprahyoid neck spaces.

Material/methods: Sixty patients presenting with suprahyoid neck masses underwent computed tomography of the neck. Read More

Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC): is it useful in preoperative diagnosis of parotid gland lesions?

Acta Chir Belg 2017 Apr 21;117(2):110-114. Epub 2016 Dec 21.

a Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery , Centro Hospitalar S. João , Porto , Portugal.

Background: Salivary gland tumors are an uncommon entity and its histopathology is highly varied due to heterogeneous cellular composition. The role of the preoperative fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) remains controversial. The purpose of this study is to compare the cytologic findings of salivary gland lesions with the histologic diagnoses, in order to assess the usefulness and accuracy of fine-needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of parotid gland tumors.
