Current classifications of salivary gland tumors separate mucoepidermoid carcinoma from other neoplasms on the basis of a number of histological features, in particular the lack of participation of neoplastic myoepithelial cells. However, ultrastructural examination of low- and intermediate-grade mucoepidermoid carcinomas and pleomorphic adenomas reveals many common organizational and cellular features. Of prime importance is the relationship of intermediate cells to the luminal cells in… CONTINUE READING
