Clear cell variant of intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma: Report of a rare entity.

Varma S, Shameena P, Sudha S, Nair RG, Varghese IV - J Oral Maxillofac Pathol (2012)

Bottom Line: Intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma of jaw bones is a rare lesion.It becomes extremely important to distinguish this lesion from other clear cell lesions of jaw region.Here, we report a case of clear cell variant of intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma in the mandible.

ABSTRACT
Intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma of jaw bones is a rare lesion. Abundance of clear cells in an intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma may complicate its histopathologic diagnosis. It becomes extremely important to distinguish this lesion from other clear cell lesions of jaw region. Here, we report a case of clear cell variant of intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma in the mandible.

Figure 2: Clinical photograph - intraoral

Mentions: Clinical examination showed the presence of a diffuse, nontender swelling of approximately 6 × 4 centimeters over the left angle–ramus region of mandible [Figure 1]. Intraorally the swelling extended from 34 to retromolar region, obliterating the buccal vestibule [Figure 2]. The mucosa overlying the swelling was intact with normal color and smooth texture. A panoramic radiograph was taken which showed a multilocular radiolucency, which extended from 34 region toward coronoid and condyle, involving both [Figure 3]. With these features a provisional diagnosis of ameloblastoma was made. The patient underwent an intraoral incision biopsy from the lesion.
