On the basis of the heterogeneity of cytokeratins 7 and 20 expression in malignant epithelial tumors, the cytokeratin 7/20 immunophenotype has served as a useful diagnostic tool for discrimination of primary and/or metastatic carcinomas of unknown origin. However, the expression pattern of these cytokeratins in malignant salivary gland tumors has not been thoroughly studied. Our study material was composed of 84 malignant tumors of primary major or minor salivary gland origin. Nine histologic… CONTINUE READING
