Malignant neoplasms represent one-third of all pediatric salivary gland tumors. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) composes 51% of malignant tumors and 16% of all salivary gland neoplasms in pediatrics. Prognostic factors in MEC in pediatric patients have not been well defined. Histopathologic features, clinical outcomes and proliferation markers in 26 pediatric patients (median age 11 years; 19F:7M) with salivary gland MECs were evaluated retrospectively. MEC histocytologic grading used a three… CONTINUE READING
