cell carcinoma of the parotid gland.
cell carcinoma of palate a rare presentation.

12) In their survey of patients younger than 20 years, Byers et al found a 5-year survival rate of 50% in patients with acinic
cell carcinoma, including high-grade tumors.
cell carcinoma of the salivary glands: A literature review.
cell carcinomas account for approximately 6% of all salivary gland neoplasms and are the fourth most common salivary malignant neoplasm, following mucoepidermoid carcinomas, adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified, and adenoid cystic carcinoma.
2-4) With regard to the prevalence of parotid gland cancers in children, acinic
cell carcinoma is second only to mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
There were 2 false suspicious diagnoses for acinic
According to sources cited by Kim and Mathog, mortality from acinic
cell carcinoma at 20 years is as high as:
The differential diagnosis of clear cell salivary neoplasias encompasses a broad range of possibilities, including primary salivary clear cell tumors, such as clear cell carcinoma (CCC), epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma (EMEC), and clear cell myoepithelioma/myoepithelial carcinoma (CCMEC), as well as clear cell variants of other salivary tumors, including acinic
cell carcinoma, oncocytoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
Histologically distinctive (although one of the few cases published in this location was reported as acinic
cell carcinoma at intraoperative consultation), the differential diagnosis with oncocytic cell tumors or other lesions of the salivary gland that can be composed at least partially by cells of granular cytoplasm, might be difficult, especially on fine-needle aspiration biopsy smears.
Frozen sections are often unreliable because they have difficulty distinguishing a renal carcinoma from an oncocytoma, an odontogenic tumor, and an acinic
cell, thyroid, and lung carcinoma.
