Abstract

Neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is uncommon in the head and neck and rare in the salivary glands. In the latter location, it may manifest as pain or a palpable mass. These tumors can be quite aggressive, with a tendency toward recurrence and regional and distant metastasis....

Abstract.

The epidemiology of salivary gland tumors worldwide is not very well defined. Although many studies on this subject have been undertaken, the data are generally focused on specific topics such as parotid gland neoplasms or tumors of the major salivary glands. We conducted a...

Abstract

Myoepitheliomas are rare and generally benign neoplasms that account for fewer than 1% of all salivary gland tumors. A myoepithelioma neoplasm is almost entirely composed of myoepithelial cells and is most frequently located in the parotid gland and in the minor salivary glands...

Salivary gland cancer in patients younger than 30 years

April 1, 2011  |  Amy L. Rutt, DO, Mary J. Hawkshaw, BSN, RN, CORLN, Deborah Lurie, PhD, and Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS

Abstract

Previous research has shown that salivary gland tumors are rare in the young population. A clinical diagnosis has to be made very carefully because the proportion of malignancies is higher in children than in adults. We present a review of cases of malignant salivary gland...

Papillary cystadenocarcinoma originating from a minor salivary gland with lymph node metastases

March 1, 2011  |  Demet Etit, MD, Nese Ekinci, MD, Gozde Evcim, MD, and Kazim Onal, MD

Abstract

Papillary cystadenocarcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm of the salivary glands. This tumor most commonly arises in the major salivary glands, mainly in the parotid gland, and rarely metastasizes to regional lymph nodes. We report here a case of papillary cystadenocarcinoma...

Abstract

Sialolithiasis is one of the most common diseases of the salivary gland, but giant sialoliths have been reported in the literature infrequently. The submandibular gland and its duct appear to be the sites most susceptible to this disease. We report 2 cases of giant sialoliths...

Abstract

Salivary glands are the site of a wide variety of histopathologic types of benign and malignant tumors. The author reviewed 23 articles from 12 African countries published between 1980 and 2004 to examine patterns of salivary gland tumors. These neoplasms represent a...
