OBJECTIVE Markers for normal salivary gland myoepithelium were used to determine the extent of their expression in the neoplastic myoepithelial (nonluminal) cells of pleomorphic adenomas and then in the tumor cells in myoepitheliomas and to gather information necessary to establish diagnostic criteria, especially muscle actin expression, for myoepitheliomas. STUDY DESIGN Methanol/acetic acid-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue was used to immunohistochemically study expression of intermediate… CONTINUE READING
