Warthin tumor of the oropharyngeal minor salivary gland.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2018 10;6:2050313X18818712. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Cooper University Hospital, Camden, NJ, USA.

Warthin tumor is the second most common benign salivary gland tumor that classically arises in the parotid gland. It can be synchronous, metachronous, multifocal, bilateral, or unilateral, which complicates diagnosis and management. Rare cases of Warthin tumor of the minor salivary gland are described, but no cases of unilateral, synchronous Warthin tumor involving the parotid and minor salivary gland have been reported.

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.

Department of Oral Pathology and Microbiology, Manav Rachna Dental College, Faridabad, Haryana, India.

Salivary gland tumors are clinically diverse group of neoplasms, of which pleomorphic adenoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) are most common benign and malignant tumors, respectively. Besides the major salivary glands, these tumors can affect the minor salivary gland tissues in the posterior part of the hard palate. Minor salivary gland tumor accounts for about 15% of all the salivary gland neoplasm, of which MEC accounts to about 35. Read More

Intraductal papilloma arising from the accessory parotid gland: A case report and literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 May;97(20):e10761

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Peking University Shenzhen Hospital, Shenzhen, Guangdong.

Rationale: Intraductal papillomas of the accessory parotid glands are extremely rare benign tumors that are most commonly derived from minor salivary glands and are easily misdiagnosed as other diseases. Studying these lesions by pathology and immunohistochemistry can raise awareness of the disease, reduce the rate of misdiagnosis, and provide more precise treatments.

Department of Oral and maxillofacial Pathology, NIMS Dental College, Jaipur, India.

Centrally occurring salivary gland tumors are rare. Because of a considerable overlap between the clinical and histopathological features, this group of tumors often produces a diagnostic difficulty to the clinicians and oral pathologists. Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) is an unusual, low-grade, malignant salivary gland tumor that represents approximately 2% of the salivary gland tumors with almost 90% arising in the parotid gland.

MAML2 Rearrangements in Variant Forms of Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma: Ancillary Diagnostic Testing for the Ciliated and Warthin-like Variants.

Am J Surg Pathol 2018 Jan;42(1):130-136

Departments of Pathology.

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) is the most common salivary gland malignancy. Recent studies have shown that most MECs harbor gene fusions involving MAML2-an alteration that appears to be specific for MEC, a finding that could be diagnostically useful. While most cases of MEC are histologically straightforward, uncommon variants can cause considerable diagnostic difficulty. Read More

Difficulty in the Cytodiagnosis of Mammary Analogue Secretory Carcinoma: Survey of 109 Cytologists with a Case Originating from a Minor Salivary Gland.

Acta Cytol 2017 25;61(6):469-476. Epub 2017 Jul 25.

Department of Pathology, Saga University Hospital, Saga, Japan.

Background: Mammary analogue secretory carcinoma (MASC) of the salivary gland shows morphologic similarities and shares an immunophenotype and characteristic ETV6-NTRK3 translocation with secretory carcinoma of the breast. We present a buccal case of MASC along with a survey-based debate about its cytologic diagnosis by fine-needle aspiration (FNA).

Case: FNA of the buccal nodule of a 58-year-old Japanese man was initially performed by 3 cytologists who gave different assessments of the Papanicolaou classification (i. Read More

Margins for Benign Salivary Gland Neoplasms of the Head and Neck.

Oral Maxillofac Surg Clin North Am 2017 Aug;29(3):325-340

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, University of Tennessee Medical Center, 1924 Alcoa Highway, Knoxville, TN 37920, USA; Department of Pathology, University of Tennessee Medical Center, 1924 Alcoa Highway, Knoxville, TN 37920, USA; Department of Radiology, University of Tennessee Medical Center, 1924 Alcoa Highway, Knoxville, TN 37920, USA.

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.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, College of Medicine, Chonbuk National University, Jeonju, Republic of Korea.

Objectives/hypothesis: Core needle biopsy is an effective diagnostic tool widely used in many oncological diagnostic approaches. It provides an adequate tissue sample for histological evaluation of architecture, which allows tumor grading and classification of malignant and benign tumors. This study aimed to provide an updated meta-analysis and systematic review of core needle biopsy in the salivary glands. Read More

Multiple Oral Deep Penetrating Nevi Extending to the Masseter and Buccal Fat Pad.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2017 Dec 1;75(12):2579-2592. Epub 2017 Jun 1.

Associate Professor, Department of Oral Pathology, Oral Cancer Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Dentistry, Seoul, Korea. Electronic address:

The deep penetrating nevus (DPN) is a rare benign melanocytic tumor often clinically and histopathologically mistaken for malignant melanoma (MM) and other nevus types. This report describes an extremely rare case of multiple lesions of a large DPN in the oral cavity with extensive infiltration to the minor salivary gland, buccal fat pad, buccinators, and masseter muscles, yet with preservation of the normal anatomic architecture. After receiving a diagnosis of MM in another hospital, the patient was at risk for receiving a wide excision that included the masticatory muscles, facial nerve, and overlying skin. Read More

Objective: Salivary gland neoplasms represent less than 3% of all tumors in the general population of which benign adenomas account for 65.5%. Basal cell adenoma which is classified as a subtype of monomorphic adenomas accounts for 1-2% of all salivary gland epithelial tumors, and more than 80% of them arise in the major salivary glands, mostly the parotid gland and has female predominance reporting mostly in the elderly age groups.

Histological, immunohistological and molecular characteristics of intraductal precursor of carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma support a multistep carcinogenic process.

Virchows Arch 2017 Jun 28;470(6):601-609. Epub 2017 Mar 28.

Institute of Pathology, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

In recent years, multistep carcinogenesis of carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (CEPA) has been identified, starting with intraductal neoplasia within pre-existent pleomorphic adenoma (PA). However, as yet there is no consensus regarding clinical relevance and appropriate terminology of precursor lesions in CEPA. We therefore decided to investigate precursor lesions, especially intraductal carcinoma, in a series of 85 cases of CEPA. Read More
