The Leopold G. Koss Department of Cytopathology, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, New York.

Salivary glands located in the head and neck area are known to have different lesions with prominent oncocytic features. Fine needle aspiration is usually the initial approach in the management of these lesions, whether they represent neoplastic or non-neoplastic processes. Owing to the limited material present upon cytopathologic examination, knowledge of variants and subtypes of various oncocytic lesions that can occur in this area is of major importance to provide the most accurate interpretation to the patients and clinicians.

Moving toward a systematic approach for reporting salivary gland cytopathology: cytohistological correlation with the application of the Milan system for risk stratification at a tertiary care center.

Diagn Cytopathol 2019 Nov 10;47(11):1125-1131. Epub 2019 Jul 10.

Department of Pathology, PGIMS, Rohtak, Haryana.

Introduction: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of salivary glands is a well-established technique that plays a critical role in the preoperative diagnosis of lesions. Despite its clinical utility, it remains one of the most challenging areas in cytopathology. This is because there is no consensus on how to report salivary gland cytopathology, which has resulted in inconsistent terminology and confusion in communication among cytopathologists and clinicians.

Diagnostic accuracy of FNA cytology for diagnosis of salivary gland tumors in pediatric patients.

Cancer Cytopathol 2019 Aug 10;127(8):529-538. Epub 2019 Jul 10.

Pathology Unit, Department of Mental and Physical Health and Preventive Medicine, University of Campania "L. Vanvitelli", Naples, Italy.

Background: Salivary gland tumors are rare in pediatric patients and include both benign and malignant types. Although fine-needle aspiration cytology is widely used to diagnose salivary gland tumors in adults, such diagnostic techniques in pediatric patients are still poorly applied and studied. Nevertheless, a preoperative diagnostic definition of salivary gland lesions is highly recommended to plan a correct surgical management and to avoid over-treatment of inflammatory or reactive lesions.

Facial tumor as a presenting complaint in a patient with primary Sjögren's syndrome.

Natl J Maxillofac Surg 2019 Jan-Jun;10(1):87-90

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, A Coruña University Hospital, A Coruña, Spain.

Sjögren's syndrome is a chronic autoimmune disorder of the exocrine glands with associated lymphocytic infiltrates of the affected glands. Dryness of the mouth and eyes results from involvement of the salivary and lacrimal glands. Up to one-half of affected individuals also develop extraglandular involvement in organs distinct from the salivary and lacrimal glands, including the joints, skin, lung, gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, and kidneys.

Incidental finding of synchronous pleomorphic salivary adenoma and Warthin's tumour within a parotid gland.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Apr 24;12(4). Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Wakefield, Yorkshire, UK.

The presence of two histologically distinct lesions within the same salivary gland is rare. The majority of lesions detected in salivary glands are benign and unifocal. Ultrasound scans and MRI imaging may not detect separate lesions that are in close proximity and this presents a challenge for radiologists and surgeons in the diagnosis of salivary gland lesions.

Implementation of the MILAN system for reporting salivary gland cytopathology: Interobserver concordance and cytohistological correlation of discordant cases.

Diagn Cytopathol 2019 Aug 25;47(8):769-775. Epub 2019 Apr 25.

Department of Pathology, University College of Medical Sciences and Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, Delhi, India.

Background: Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) plays a pivotal role in evaluating salivary gland (SG) tumors. Several studies have shown diagnostic utility of MILAN system for reporting salivary gland cytopathology (MSRSGC) by examining risk of malignancy but only an occasional study has focused on interobserver variability. Hence, the present study was undertaken to assess the agreement among cytopathologists with varying experience in SG cytopathology using MSRSGC and to re-evaluate discordant cytohistological diagnoses for possible causes of misinterpretation.
