BACKGROUND Nuclear localization of β-catenin is known in a wide variety of human neoplasms; however, there are few reports in basal cell adenoma of the salivary gland. Our objective was to confirm the nuclear localization of β-catenin in basal cell adenoma and to examine whether nuclear β-catenin expression could be a useful marker in the diagnosis of basal cell adenoma. METHODS To evaluate the nuclear localization of β-catenin in basal cell adenomas, immunohistochemistry (IHC) and mutation… CONTINUE READING
