In current classification schemes, clear cell carcinoma-including both the hyalinized and nonhyalinized variety--is now an accepted subtype of malignant salivary gland tumors. Despite this, the underlying cellular differentiation process leading to the typical histomorphology of this neoplasm remains unclear. This review summarizes and illustrates the histologic, ultrastructural, and immunohistochemical evidence for the underlying squamous cell nature of clear cell carcinoma.
