The appearances most closely resembled MALT lymphoma arising in myoepithelial sialadenitis (MESA). In both cases, the tumor was excised. In one case, there has been no recurrence in 4 years of follow-up without further treatment; in the second case, the tumor has involved an axillary lymph node… CONTINUE READING
