The value of immunocytochemical staining for glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP) in salivary gland lesions was investigated in 33 fine-needle aspiration smears. The study utilized cytologic material from ten pleomorphic adenomas, six normal salivary glands, three cases of chronic sialadenitis, three Warthin's tumors, two adenoid cystic carcinomas, three adenocarcinomas, two malignant mixed tumors, one acinic cell carcinoma, and three mucoepidermoid carcinomas. All tested pleomorphic adenomas… CONTINUE READING
