     Salivary duct carcinoma is a high-grade adenocarcinoma that resembles breast ductal carcinoma. It is believed to be derived from intra- and interlobular excretory ducts. Salivary duct carcinoma may arise de novo or as a relatively common malignant component of a carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma. It accounts for about 9% of all malignant salivary gland tumors. Although there is a wide age range at presentation, most patients present in the seventh decade of life; men are affected much more frequently than women (4:1).
