We reviewed 391 cases of salivary gland tumors collected in a 13 year period at the Institute of Pathological Anatomy of the University of Modena, according to the new WHO classification (1991).

Within malignant tumors, 16 cases were reclassified, and new entities, such as polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma, papillary cystoadenocarcinoma and salivary duct carcinoma were introduced. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas were subdivised in low-grade and high-grade tumors, but at the follow-up histological grade did not correlate with clinical behaviour of the lesions.

Abstract

We reviewed 391 cases of salivary gland tumors collected in a 13 year period at the Institute of Pathological Anatomy of the University of Modena, according to the new WHO classification (1991). A diagnosis of pleomorphic adenoma was changed in adenoid cystic carcinoma. Within malignant tumors, 16 cases were reclassified, and new entities, such as polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma, papillary cystoadenocarcinoma and salivary duct carcinoma were introduced. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas were subdivised in low-grade and high-grade tumors, but at the follow-up histological grade did not correlate with clinical behaviour of the lesions.
