Epithelial-Myoepithelial Carcinoma

Common Name(s)

Epithelial-Myoepithelial Carcinoma

Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma is a rare soft tissue neoplasm of chondroblastic origin. The tumors are most commonly found in middle-aged and elderly individuals, are more common among men, and are often detected as deep-seated lesions in the extremities. Despite their relatively low-grade malignancy, recurrence and metastasis may appear many years after the initial diagnosis. Histologic tissue section examination reveals a mixture of cellular and myxoid stromal components ({8:Panagopoulos et al., 2002}).

Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma of lacrimal gland from an ex pleomorphic adenoma.
 

Author(s): Bhanu Prasad Venkatesulu, Sushmita Pathy, Archana George Vallonthaiel, Bhavna Chawla

Journal:

 

A 47-year-old man with a history of recurrent pleomorphic adenoma of the right lacrimal gland presented with rapid onset of a swelling in the right orbit. Initial imaging with CT showed that the swelling was grossly involving the extraocular muscles. Hence we had a suspicion of malignant ...

Journal:

 

We present a case of a 72-year-old man with a parotid mass which was initially diagnosed as a pleomorphic adenoma. Intraoperatively, the tumour was found to be invading the facial nerve. It was later found to be an epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma, a rare salivary gland tumour. ...
