CONTEXT Primary salivary clear cell tumors comprise an uncommonly encountered subgroup of salivary neoplasia. We hypothesize that clear cell carcinoma does not represent a "monomorphic" variant of epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma, but is distinct in terms of histogenesis and tumor biology. OBJECTIVES To compare the clinicopathologic features of 20 cases of salivary primary clear cell tumors, including 12 clear cell carcinomas (CCCs), 7 epithelial-myoepithelial carcinomas (EMECs), and 1… CONTINUE READING
