Sood A, Chung S, Datiashvili RO - Eplasty (2014)

Bottom Line: Pleomorphic adenoma is a well-described benign tumor of the salivary glands, originating from myoepithelial and intercalated duct cells.It is most commonly found in major salivary glands.We present a rare and unusual case of pleomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary glands in the lower lip.

ABSTRACT
Salivary gland tumors are uncommonly seen and account for less than 3% of the head and neck tumors. Pleomorphic adenoma is a well-described benign tumor of the salivary glands, originating from myoepithelial and intercalated duct cells. It is most commonly found in major salivary glands. We present a rare and unusual case of pleomorphic adenoma of the minor salivary glands in the lower lip. The tumor was diagnosed upon excision of 1.5 × 1.2 cm(2) well-circumscribed nodule at the junction of the lower lip and chin in a 46-year-old man. The histopathological analysis confirmed presence of an epithelial salivary gland tumor with islands of plasmacytoid cells, and duct-like structures within a variable and mixed stroma.

Mentions: Excision of the lesion was performed via transverse skin incision. Surgical extrication revealed a well-circumscribed, rubbery nodule; it was located within the subcutaneous tissue plane. It measured approximately 1.3 × 1.1 × 0.9 cm3. Final histopathology returned 1 week postoperatively revealing an epithelial salivary gland tumor with islands of plasmacytoid cells, and duct-like structures within a variable and mixed stroma indicative of a PA (Figs 1a-1c). Complete excision of the lesion was confirmed with histopathological margins. Post-operatively, there were no complications, the incision healed by primary intent. The patient was given the pertinent counseling and instructions including follow-up.
