We studied the AgNOR counts in 30 cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma from salivary glands (n = 18) and non-salivary sites (n = 12) in an attempt to correlate them with the evolution of the disease. AgNOR counts per nucleus varied between 1.96 and 6.12 (mean value 4.2 +/- 0.99) as compared with 1.21 +/- 1.4 in normal salivary tissue. There was no significant difference between cases that had an unfavourable clinical outcome (recurrence, metastases, and/or died of the disease) and cases without… CONTINUE READING
