Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma

slide 4 of 4


Comments:
This 62 y/o male patient presented with a complaint of swelling in the left submandibular region for 2 months. A fine needle aspirate was suggestive of squamous cell carcinoma. Modified radical neck dissection was done. The specimen showed a solid gray-white tumor with gelatinous surface measuring 8.5 cm in greatest dimension. The tumor appeared to invade the skeletal muscle underneath. Uninvolved salivary gland can be seen on the lower right of the specimen. Microscopically, it was a high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
