Salivary gland neoplasms are rare in the pediatric age group. Pleomorphic adenomas in the submandibular gland are rarer. In this article, we present a seven-year-old female with a slowly growing mass in her right submandibular area. The firm, mobile and painless mass was about 2x3 cm in size and with bimanual palpation it was indiscriminated from the submandibular gland. Magnetic resonance imaging with contrast revealed a heterogeneous and minimally lobulated mass within the submandibular gland… Expand


Pleomorphic adenoma of the submandibular gland: clinicopathological and immunohistochemical features of 60 cases in Brazil.
PAs of the submandibular gland are histologically similar to PAs of other salivary glands, and that they have a low proliferative rate and a good prognosis. Expand
Pleomorphic adenoma of the submandibular gland.
Pleomorphic adenomas of the submandibular glands are exceedingly rare tumors in the pediatric practice and except for the rare cases of malignant transformation, the prognosis is excellent. Expand
Masses of the salivary gland region in children.
Vascular lesions outnumber solid tumors of the salivary gland region and the overall prognosis is favorable, although certain solid salivaries may demonstrate locally aggressive behavior. Expand
Salivary neoplasms: overview of a 35-year experience with 2,807 patients.
A 35-year experience with 2,807 patients treated for salivary tumors which arose in the parotid gland, submandibular gland, and seromucinous glands of the upper aerodigestive tract, finding Pleomorphic adenomas comprised 45% of the total. Expand
Salivary gland neoplasms in children.
Results support no enucleation of the tumor being applied at the first operation for curing both benign and malignant salivary gland tumors, and the indication for radical neck dissection appears to be limited. Expand
Salivary gland lesions in children. A survey of 430 cases
Although follow‐up information was too fragmentary for valid analysis, there was little evidence to support marked differences in the behavior of pediatric salivary tumors from those occurring in the general population. Expand
Tumors of the salivary glands in childhood and adolescence.
Salivary gland diseases are rare in childhood and adolescence, particularly true for the malignant parotid tumors that are more frequent in juvenile patients, a fact that has to be considered in diagnosis and therapy. Expand

Salivary Gland Tumors in Children
Fewer than 5% of all primary salivary gland neoplasms occur in children, but if benign supporting tissue tumors are excluded, a higher proportion than in adults are malignant. The first decade ofExpand
Salivary gland malignancies in children
Sixteen cases of major salivary gland malignancy are reviewed, 14 occurring in the parotid gland and two in the submandibular gland, with Adenoid cystic carcinoma was the most commonmalignancy encountered, occuring in five patients; four have died of disease. Expand
