Review of the Major and Minor Salivary Glands, Part 2: Neoplasms and Tumor-like Lesions.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2018 15;8:48. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Imaging Sciences, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA.

The salivary glands are small structures in the head and neck, but can give rise to a wide variety of benign and malignant pathology. When this occurs, patients may present with palpable swelling, although it is quite common that they are asymptomatic and a salivary gland mass was discovered as an incidental finding on imaging performed for another reason. It is, therefore, critical that radiologists pay careful attention to the salivary glands and have working knowledge of the key differentiating features of the most common neoplastic and nonneoplastic etiologies of salivary gland masses.

The proper ablation of any neoplasm of the head and neck requires the inclusion of linear and anatomic barrier margins surrounding the neoplasm. Extirpative surgery of the major and minor salivary glands is certainly no exception to this surgical principle. To this end, the selection and execution of the most appropriate ablative surgical procedure for a major or minor benign salivary gland neoplasm is an essential exercise in oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Fine-needle aspiration with selective use of core needle biopsy of major salivary gland tumors.

Laryngoscope 2017 11 23;127(11):2522-2527. Epub 2017 May 23.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

Objectives: Preferential use of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) versus core needle biopsy (CNB) for distinguishing benign from malignant major salivary gland tumors is highly debated. The main disadvantage of FNA is lower sensitivity, whereas arguments against CNB include use of a larger bore needle and greater risk of complications. The aim of this study is to evaluate our experience performing ultrasound-guided (UG) FNA with selective use of CNB based on preliminary cytopathology, and to determine whether our preoperative diagnostic approach is more sensitive and specific than FNA alone-and at least as sensitive and specific as CNB alone.

A functional superficial parotidectomy can maintain salivary function by preserving the Stensen duct. However, this technique still brings the possibility of salivary leakage, because major branches of the parotid duct from the resected site do not get ligated. To reduce this complication, this study introduces a modified technique with major branch ligation. Read More

Adv Anat Pathol 2017 Jan;24(1):15-23

Department of Pathology, The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.

The existence of primary salivary gland type tumors (SGTs), similar to those occurring in the major salivary glands, is well known in the thoracic cavity. When they occur in this anatomic area, these tumors more commonly arise from the lung. However, the existence of these tumors primarily affecting the thymus, although recognized in the literature, is rather not well documented or known. Read More

Papillary Cystadenocarcinoma of the Parotid Gland: A Rare Case Report.

J Clin Diagn Res 2016 Jun 1;10(6):ED01-3. Epub 2016 Jun 1.

Professor, Department of General Pathology, Christian Medical College , Vellore, Tamilnadu, India .

Papillary cystadenocarcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm of the salivary gland, characterized by noticeable cystic and solid areas with papillary endophytic projections. These tumours lack features that characterize cystic variants of several more common salivary gland carcinomas. It was first described in 1991 by World Health Organization as a separate entity and cystadenocarcinoma with or without papillary component in the AFIP classification. Read More

Recurrent Benign Salivary Gland Neoplasms.

Adv Otorhinolaryngol 2016 12;78:63-70. Epub 2016 Apr 12.

The most important causes of recurrence of benign pleomorphic adenoma are enucleation with intraoperative spillage and incomplete tumor excision in association with characteristic histologic findings for the lesion (incomplete pseudocapsule and the presence of pseudopodia). Most recurrent pleomorphic adenomas (RPAs) are multinodular. MRI is the imaging method of choice for their assessment. Read More

Molecular Pathology and Biomarkers.

Adv Otorhinolaryngol 2016 12;78:17-24. Epub 2016 Apr 12.

The field of salivary gland tumor biology is quite broad, given the numerous subtypes of both benign and malignant tumors originating from the major and minor salivary glands. Knowledge about the molecular pathology of these lesions is still limited, and there are few clinically useful diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. However, recent discoveries of certain key genomic alterations, such as chromosome translocations, copy number alterations, and mutations, provide new insights into the molecular pathogenesis of these lesions and may help to better define them.
