Microglandular adenosis (MGA) is a well-recognized, if rare and incompletely characterized, entity in which carcinoma is rarely thought to develop. We report 17 cases in which patterns of adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) coexisted with MGA. Immunocharacterization with beta-catenin, E-cadherin, cytokeratins (AE1/AE3), epithelial membrane antigen, S-100 protein, smooth muscle actin, and vimentin was also performed. Most cases had areas of invasive ACC characterized by its defining dual-lumen types… CONTINUE READING
