Cao Y, Zhu M, Mao R, Cao R, Yu G, Niu A - Oncol Lett (2014)

Bottom Line: Oncocytes are large, polygonal cells that are characterized by marked cellular atypia, frequent mitoses, wide eosinophilic granular cytoplasm, a central nucleus and a prominent nucleolus.The follow-up data showed no evidence of recurrence and the patient is in a good health 20 months after the surgery.In the current case, the patient had not only OC but also thymoma, which is exceedingly rare and may represent the first documented case in the literature.

ABSTRACT

Oncocytic carcinoma (OC) arising in the salivary gland is a very rare tumor with only 32 previously reported cases. In this report, we describe a novel case of oncocytic carcinoma with associated thymoma, which arose in the left parotid gland of a 66-year-old male with a history of a painless left parotid mass for 1 year. Oncocytes are large, polygonal cells that are characterized by marked cellular atypia, frequent mitoses, wide eosinophilic granular cytoplasm, a central nucleus and a prominent nucleolus. The follow-up data showed no evidence of recurrence and the patient is in a good health 20 months after the surgery. In the current case, the patient had not only OC but also thymoma, which is exceedingly rare and may represent the first documented case in the literature.

Mentions: The parotid tumor consisted of unencapsulated, irregular, cord-like, tan to gray masses. The cut surface was light brown, solid, and non-homogeneous with cystic degeneration, necrosis or hemorrhage (Fig. 1). The tumor of the thymus was encapsulated and its cut surface was solid and light brown (Fig. 2).
