The criteria for distinguishing benign lymphoepithelial lesions (BLEL) from low grade B-cell lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type in salivary glands and the significance of genotypically documented clonality in this setting are controversial. In addition, the clinical implications of a neoplastic diagnosis are unclear. The histopathologic features of 68 specimens from 49 patients with at least one salivary gland biopsy with LEL together with available clinical data were… CONTINUE READING
