Adenoid cystic carcinoma in the maxillary gingiva: a case report and immunohistochemical study.

Zhao C, Liu JZ, Wang SB, Wang SC - Cancer Biol Med (2013)

Bottom Line: Clinical examination revealed an ulcer in the left upper molar gingiva, with swelling in the region from the second premolar to the third molar.X-ray images demonstrated the involvement of the maxillary alveolar bone.In this case, no recurrence or distant metastasis was observed after 2 years of follow-up.

ABSTRACT
Gingival adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy. We describe the diagnosis and treatment of a 43 year-old woman who presented with a persistent oral ulcer for approximately 1 year, and subsequent pain in the left posterior maxillary region. Clinical examination revealed an ulcer in the left upper molar gingiva, with swelling in the region from the second premolar to the third molar. X-ray images demonstrated the involvement of the maxillary alveolar bone. The histopathological and immunohistochemical features were diagnostic of ACC. ACC is often presented as a gingival lesion; thus, it may easily be neglected by patients. The identification of this tumor using specific pathological analyses prevents misdiagnosis and enables clinicians to determine the appropriate treatment. In this case, no recurrence or distant metastasis was observed after 2 years of follow-up.

Mentions: A 43 year-old woman complained of an oral ulcer that persisted for almost 1 year as well as pain in the left posterior maxillary region for 1 month. Clinical examination revealed an ulcer on the left upper molar gingiva, with swelling from the second premolar to the third molar in the same region. X-ray images showed the involvement of the maxillary alveolar bone (Figure 1).
