Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a rare malignant tumor that usually arises in the major and minor salivary glands and other locations containing secretory glands, including the lower female genital tract. Lower female genital tract carcinomas with adenoid cystic differentiation can be subclassified into 2 distinct groups based on the presence or absence of high-risk HPV. Cervical mixed carcinomas with some adenoid cystic differentiation are high-risk HPV-related but pure adenoid cystic carcinomas of vulvar and cervical origin appear to be unrelated to high-risk HPV...

Epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) is the epithelial-specific molecule expressed on various epithelial cell types. The function of EpCAM involves cellular adhesion, proliferation, and signaling in both normal tissues and cancers. The purposes of this study were to investigate the EpCAM expression in salivary gland neoplasms and examine its relationship with pathologic characteristics. Forty-two cases of salivary gland neoplasms, including 20 mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MECs), 11 adenoid cystic carcinomas (ACCs), 9 pleomorphic adenomas (PAs), and 2 polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinomas (PLGAs) were enrolled...

A 64-year-old man presented with a 3-month history of recurrent conjunctivitis. He was evaluated by an ophthalmologist and submitted to a CT scan that revealed an intraconic mass with invasion of the lateral orbital wall. He was operated, the mass was completely removed (with preservation of the intraorbital structures) and the lateral orbital wall rebuilt. The histopathological analysis revealed an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lacrimal gland. 4 months later a painful recurrence of the lesion was diagnosed with invasion of the orbital roof and eyelids...

OBJECTIVES: Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (EMC) is a rare salivary gland malignancy associated with an overall good prognosis. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) typically shows a dual population of myoepithelial and ductal cells. Rarely, acellular matrix globules are present, raising a differential diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma (AdCC), a more aggressive salivary gland malignancy associated with a poor long-term prognosis. We report an FNA case of EMC containing a predominant pattern of AdCC-like spherical globules...

Preoperative evaluation of tumor thickness and silhouette in basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is one of the important assessments to be done. However, evaluation is not always sufficient even utilizing sonography and magnetic resonance imaging. Recently, a new technique called real-time tissue elastography (RTE) was developed that can display the hardness of tissue as a color overlay of a sonographic image. Therefore, RTE could be used as a tool for detecting the tumor border according to differences in tissue rigidity...
