Abstract Background: Many patients with human immunodeficiency virus present with atypical features. Early indicators of human immunodeficiency virus are scarce and hence most affected patients are diagnosed in the later stages of the disease, which is associated with poor prognosis. Salivary gland disease usually develops before acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, and is sometimes the first manifestation of human immunodeficiency virus infection. Salivary gland lesions include benign…

Oral lymphoepithelial cyst: A clinicopathological study of 26 cases and review of the literature

Oral LEC is a pathologic entity with discrete clinical presentation that is commonly misdiagnosed in clinical practice as other, mostly benign, entities, and its pathogenesis remains obscure, as its clinicopathologic features are consistent with both theories suggested up to date.

The results of this study show that the epithelial lining of CLL does not derive from preexisting ducts and that the immunophenotype of C LL very closely resembles that of LAS, which seems to suggest that CLL and LAS are tightly related diseases.

The spectrum of sonographic and Doppler features of benign lymphoepithelial lesions in HIV-positive patients is broad, and sonographic findings are non-specific for the diagnosis of such lesions, especially in cases of mixed solid-cystic isolated nodules.
