Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma With Sialolithiasis of the Left Submandibular Gland: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Int J Surg Pathol 2018 Nov 27:1066896918814304. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

1 Aichi Gakuin University, Nagoya, Japan.

Adenoid cystic carcinoma is one of the most common salivary gland malignancies with poor long-term prognosis, but the coexistence of sialoliths is extraordinarily rare. In this article, we report a case of 30-year-old woman with a history of submandibular area swelling with intermittent pain increasing during mealtimes that had led her attending physician to diagnose a sialolith in the left submandibular gland on a radiograph 10 years before. However, the surgical specimen proved to be an adenoid cystic carcinoma accompanied with a sialolith. Read More

Results of a randomized controlled trial of level IIb preserving neck dissection in clinically node-negative squamous carcinoma of the oral cavity.

World J Surg Oncol 2018 Nov 8;16(1):219. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

Department of Pathology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, 221 005, India.

Background: The lymphatic spread from the cancers of the oral cavity follows an orderly progression and involvement of lower nodes without involvement of upper nodes and skip metastasis is rare. Selective neck dissections are increasingly being performed for node-positive patients; however, in node-negative patients the options of wait and watch, prophylactic radiotherapy, and prophylactic elective node dissections are debated. Quality of life and shoulder functions are important to choose the appropriate therapeutic modality. Read More

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Maxillo-Facial Surgery, and Burn Unity, Centro Hospitalar de São João, Porto Medical School, Porto, Portugal.

Facial artery perforator flaps have been recently reported by different authors for perioral, nasal alar and cheek defects, but not for intraoral reconstruction. We have extended the use of the facial artery perforator flap in a 56-year-old man with a squamous cell carcinoma of left mouth floor, who was submitted to tumor resection with marginal mandibulectomy and left supraomohyoid neck dissection. The flap was designed according to the size of the defect (5 × 3 cm), centered on the perforator to create a symmetric flap and was tunnelled intraorally by means of a 90° rotation. Read More

Case Rep Dent 2017 17;2017:7495695. Epub 2017 Dec 17.

Department of Oral Medicine & Radiology, Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Sarcomatoid carcinoma (SC) is a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma which is characterized by a dysplastic epithelial component and a stromal element with invasive fusiform or spindle-shaped cells. The clinical and histopathologic characteristics make it very difficult to distinguish SC from epithelioid sarcoma (ES). We present a case of a 51-year-old man with a soft tissue mass in the oral cavity diagnosed as proximal variant of epithelioid sarcoma on incisional biopsy. Read More

Practicability of submandibular gland in squamous cell carcinomas of oral cavity.

Indian J Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2015 Mar 22;67(Suppl 1):138-40. Epub 2014 Nov 22.

Department of Orthopedics, Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre, Mumbai, India.

Current surgical treatment for oral cancers includes wide surgical excision of the primary lesion with appropriate neck dissection. Although tumor metastasis to the gland is uncommon, submandibular glands are frequently excised as a part of neck dissection because of their proximity to the primary lesion and afferent lymph nodes. Herein, we have retrospectively investigated the rate of involvement of submandibular glands in oral cavity tumors, and discussed the feasibility about resection of the submandibular glands.

Elective Neck Dissection in patients with stage T1-T2N0 carcinoma of the anterior tongue.

Hippokratia 2014 Apr;18(2):120-4

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Colţea Clinical Hospital, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

Objectives: The presence of neck metastases represents one of the most important prognostic factors for carcinomas of the anterior tongue, the five-year survival rate being under 20% in patients with regional metastases. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the efficacy of prophylactic selective neck dissection in patients without detectable nodal metastases.

Materials And Methods: A matched case-control study with prospective follow up was conducted in ENT Department of Coltea Clinical Hospital for 86 patients with T1-T2N0 stage carcinoma of the anterior tongue surgically treated between January 2000 and January 2005 with or without concurrent selective supraomohyoid neck dissection (SND).

Supraomohyoid neck dissection and modified radical neck dissection for clinically node-negative oral squamous cell carcinoma: a prospective study of prognosis, complications and quality of life.

J Craniomaxillofac Surg 2014 Dec 6;42(8):1885-90. Epub 2014 Aug 6.

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, School of Stomatology, Peking University, Beijing 100081, China.

Background: To assess the prognosis and morbidity between supraomohyoid neck dissection (SOND) and modified radical neck dissection (MRND) for oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in patients with a clinically node-negative neck (cN0).

Patients And Methods: This prospective randomized study began in June 1999, and patient accrual concluded in May 2010. The cN0 neck was confirmed on clinical palpation by senior doctors. Read More

Prognostic factors of squamous cell carcinoma of the buccal mucosa: a retrospective study of 168 cases in North China.

J Oral Maxillofac Surg 2014 Nov 29;72(11):2344-50. Epub 2014 May 29.

Professor, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, School of Stomatology, Peking University, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Purpose: Buccal mucosa squamous cell carcinoma (BSCC) is considered a rare and aggressive malignancy that has a high rate of locoregional recurrence. The aim of this study was to analyze the outcome of surgical therapy as a treatment for BSCC in a North Chinese population over a period of 14 years.

Materials And Methods: A retrospective study was performed by reviewing the records and pathologies of 168 patients with BSCC who were treated at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Stomatological Hospital, Peking University, from June 1999 to September 2013. Read More

The role of elective neck dissection in early stage buccal cancer.

Laryngoscope 2015 Jan 14;125(1):128-33. Epub 2014 Jul 14.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital at Linkou and Chang Gung University, Taipei, Taiwan; Head and Neck Oncology Group, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital at Linkou and Chang Gung University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Objectives/hypothesis: The benefits of elective neck dissection (END) in early-stage tongue cancer have been widely discussed but are still controversial regarding early-stage buccal cancer. In this study, we evaluate the role of END and the treatment outcome in early-stage buccal cancer in an areca-quid endemic area.

Study Design: Retrospective case-control study. Read More

Here we describe two patients in whom prostheses were applied for flap protection after buccal mucosal incision. In the first case, the patient was a 65-year-old man with a diagnosis of buccal mucosa squamous cell carcinoma (T2N0M0). Left buccal mucosa squamous cell tumor resection and dermoplasty were performed, followed by alveolar ridge augmentation and buccal mucosal graft in the scar area. Read More
