  • The submandibular gland is the second largest major salivary gland, which secretes 40% of the total daily saliva. Owing to its anatomic characteristics as well as the high viscosity and basicity of the saliva, sialolithiasis is found most commonly in the submandibular gland. Sialolithiasis that cannot be treated by conservative treatment is conventionally removed by an excision of the submandibular gland. Generally, an excision of the submandibular gland is performed via an extra-oral approach but the disadvantages of this treatment include a risk of injuring the facial nerve and scar formation. Case reports have revealed an even less invasive intraoral surgical technique for the removal of sialolith that does not affect the submandibular gland function. The functional recovery of the gland, complications and recurrence rates after surgery with this conservative intraoral procedure were all successful. We report 5 patients from the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Dental Hospital, Yonsei University, who had undergone a resection of the sialolith though the intraoral approach with successful results.

  • Warthin's tumor is the second most common salivary gland benign tumor, typically occurring in the fifth to seventh decades of life which shows an indolent feature. It is usually found in the parotid gland but occasionally in extra-parotid locations such as peri-parotid lymph node. However, Report of solitary Warthin's tumor in cervical lymph node is unusual. We here report a case of 72-year-old male with simultaneous malignant melanoma on eyelid and cervical lymph node enlargement in cervical level II area thus mimicking malignancy metastasis. After excisional biopsy under the local anesthesia, pathology was reported as papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum, which is a histologically pathognomic finding of Warthin's tumor. However, there was no suspicious tumorous lesion in major or minor salivary glands. This case suggests that Warthin's tumor should be considered as a possible pathology in solitary lymph node lesion of neck.

  • Kimura's Disease is a very rare, chronic inflammatory disorder with an unknown etiology, and this illness is primarily seen in young Asian males. The typical clinical features consist of painless subcutaneous masses in the head or neck region, and especially in the salivary gland and submandibular region. It is often accompanied with a regional lymphadenopathy, peripheral blood eosinophilia and elevated serum IgE levels. Histologically, it is characterized by prominent germinal centers in the involved lymph nodes, together with eosinophilic infiltration in these lymph nodes. The treatment modalities for this disease are steroid therapy, radiation therapy and surgical excision. Its clinical course is of a benign nature. We report here on a case of a 28 year old man who had a soft tissue mass in his left arm. We excised this mass and the microscopy confirmed that he suffered from Kimura's disease on microscopic examination in his left distal arm.

  • Purpose: Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a rare type of eccrine sweat gland carcinoma. Although it is mostly known as a neoplasm of the salivary gland, it could occur as a primary skin tumor. We present a patient with a primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma at the genital area. Methods: A 60-year-old man had a slowly growing 1 cm sized single tender mass near the left scrotum and he underwent excisional biopsy at a local clinic. A diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma was made and thus he was transferred to our hospital. In physical examination, other specific findings were not detected except a linear scar caused by a previous skin biopsy near the left scrotum. In CT scan, PET-CT scan and endoscopy, there was no evidence of neoplasm in other organs. It was diagnosed as the primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma and then wide excisions were performed including total 4.5 cm margin of normal skin. Results: Microscopic findings revealed proliferation of tumor cell islands with cribriform or tubular patterns containing several round, pseudocystic structures. The tumor cells showed basaloid cells with uniform and small nuclei. Tumor cells infiltrated into the dermis and upper portion of subcutaneous tissue. There was multifocal perineural invasion of tumor cells. In postoperative 6 months, we found no recurrence and other complications. Conclusion: Herein we found a rare case of primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma at the genital area.

  • Purpose: Lymphoma originated from mucosa associated lymphoid tissue(MALT) is most common in gastrointestinal system, and rarely found in salivary gland, thyroid, bronchus or orbit. We experienced a case of MALT lymphoma which was originated from conjunctiva and involving lower eyelid without metastasis. Methods: A 40-year-old man suffered palpable mass on right lower eyelid without pain. Orbital computed tomographic and ultrasonographic findings showed a conical mass($1.9{\times}1.2{\times}0.9cm$ size) inside lower eyelid. The mass was completely excised under local anesthesia and histopathological examination was followed. Results: Microscopic finding showed a multiple follicular colonization. In the follicle, small lymphocytes and plasma cells differentiated to centrocyte-like cell, monocyte B cell, plasma cell were diffusely infiltrated. Immunophenotyping was preformed on fixed section. The majority of the small cells were immunoreactive for the B cell marker CD20. Based on the typical histological findings supported by immunostaining, the mass was defined as MALT lymphoma. After excision, SPECT, abdominal CT was carried out and there were no evidence of extraorbital disease. Conclusion: Biopsy and pathological examination should be performed in patients who complain palpable mass on lower eyelid because of possibility of MALT lymphoma. Although MALT lymphoma is rarely metastasized, it is necessary to evaluate the extraorbital involvement using SPECT or other radiologic exams. For detecting extraorbital involvement, periodic follow-up examination is need.

  • Four dogs with similar respiratory signs were referred to Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, Seoul National University. The clinical signs observed in these cases were anorexia, nasal discharge, sneezing, epistaxis, ocular discharge, and exophthalmoses. The routine laboratory tests revealed leukocytosis in two cases. On the skull radiographs, soft tissue density filled nasal cavity with loss of turbinate detail and increased density in frontal sinuses were found in all cases. Lysis of nasal bone was seen in two cases. Lysis of zygomatic arch was seen in one case. On computed tomography scan images, asymmetrical destruction of turbinate and nasal septum, and the superimposition of a soft tissue mass over the turbinate with peripheral contrast enhanced effect were identified in all cases. Destruction of ipsilateral orbital bone and invasion to retrobulbar region were visualized in all cases. In addition, all cases had lysis of cribriform plate. Lysis of nasal bone and destruction of hard palate were seen in two cases. Swelling of submandibular lymph node and salivary gland was seen in a case. Invasion to brain was identified in a case. All cases were diagnosed as nasal adenocarcinoma by cytology with fine needle aspiration and curettage.

  • Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) commonly originates in the major salivary glands and respiratory tract, but it is extremely rare to find ACC in the esophagus. ACC of the esophagus is clinopathologically different from the salivary gland variant. It shows more aggressive malignant behavior and a very poor prognosis. We report here on the surgical and clinopathologic findings of ACC of the esophagus in a 65-year-old man, and we also include a review of the relevant medical literature.

  • We report a case of Warthin's tumor of the parotid gland in a 53 year old man, which is incorrectly diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma. Fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC) smear obtained from the right parotid gland revealed scattered epithelial cell clusters or nests in a diffuse inflammatory and necrotic background. Some epithelial cells had squamoid appearance showing variable sized bizarre shaped nuclei. They had abundant of dense eosinophilic keratinized cytoplasm. Occasionally, parakeratotic cells were also present. These cytologic findings with significant atypia and necrotic background made diagnosis as squamous cell carcinoma. But, the resection specimen from this patient showed classic Warthin's tumor in addition to abundant areas of inflammation and squamous metaplasia. Metaplastic or infarcted Warthin's tumor in the salivary gland may be confused with false positive diagnosis of malignancy on FNAC. Therefore, cytopathologist should have adequate awareness of potential of erroneous diagnosis in FNAC of Warthin's tumor.

  • Most of the intraoral infections origin in odontogenic infection. Odontogenic infection spreads out along the least resistant path. In maxilla, the thickness between periapical area and cortical bone is narrower on the buccal side than the palatal side. So infection usually spreads out along the buccal side rather than the palatal side. The failure of root canal treatment more frequently occurs on the buccal root compared to the palatal root. So the palatal abscess is rarer than the buccal abscess. It is difficult to differential diagnosis palatal abscess from salivary gland tumors, benign neural tumors and cysts on the palate. Therefore, when the palatal swelling is observed in children, you need to prevent the systemic spread of infection by early diagnosis of the odontogenic palatal abscess. In these cases, the patient who complained of the pain in deciduous teeth and the palatal swelling was diagnosed with odontogenic palatal abscess. The patient was treated with extraction and antibiotic medication. The palatal abscess was resolved, and we report after treatments.
