Sublingual Gland Neoplasms: Neoplasms of the sublingual glands.Sublingual Gland: A salivary gland on each side of the mouth below the TONGUE.Salivary Gland Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the SALIVARY GLANDS.Ranula: A form of retention cyst of the floor of the mouth, usually due to obstruction of the ducts of the submaxillary or sublingual glands, presenting a slowly enlarging painless deep burrowing mucocele of one side of the mouth. It is also called sublingual cyst and sublingual ptyalocele.Sebaceous Gland NeoplasmsAnal Gland Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the anal gland.Submandibular Gland: One of two salivary glands in the neck, located in the space bound by the two bellies of the digastric muscle and the angle of the mandible. It discharges through the submandibular duct. The secretory units are predominantly serous although a few mucous alveoli, some with serous demilunes, occur. (Stedman, 25th ed)Salivary Glands: Glands that secrete SALIVA in the MOUTH. There are three pairs of salivary glands (PAROTID GLAND; SUBLINGUAL GLAND; SUBMANDIBULAR GLAND).Perianal GlandsAdenoma, Pleomorphic: A benign, slow-growing tumor, most commonly of the salivary gland, occurring as a small, painless, firm nodule, usually of the parotid gland, but also found in any major or accessory salivary gland anywhere in the oral cavity. It is most often seen in women in the fifth decade. Histologically, the tumor presents a variety of cells: cuboidal, columnar, and squamous cells, showing all forms of epithelial growth. (Dorland, 27th ed)Parotid Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the PAROTID GLAND.Parotid Gland: The largest of the three pairs of SALIVARY GLANDS. They lie on the sides of the FACE immediately below and in front of the EAR.Carcinoma, Mucoepidermoid: A tumor of both low- and high-grade malignancy. The low-grade grow slowly, appear in any age group, and are readily cured by excision. The high-grade behave aggressively, widely infiltrate the salivary gland and produce lymph node and distant metastases. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas account for about 21% of the malignant tumors of the parotid gland and 10% of the sublingual gland. They are the most common malignant tumor of the parotid. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p575; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1240)Salivary Proteins and Peptides: Proteins and peptides found in SALIVA and the SALIVARY GLANDS. Some salivary proteins such as ALPHA-AMYLASES are enzymes, but their composition varies in different individuals.Serous Membrane: A thin lining of closed cavities of the body, consisting of a single layer of squamous epithelial cells (MESOTHELIUM) resting on a thin layer of CONNECTIVE TISSUE, and covered with secreted clear fluid from blood and lymph vessels. Major serous membranes in the body include PERICARDIUM; PERITONEUM; and PLEURA.Silver Proteins: Compounds of silver and proteins used as topical anti-infective agents.Palatal Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the PALATE, including those of the hard palate, soft palate and UVULA.Acinar Cells: Cells lining the saclike dilatations known as acini of various glands or the lungs.Mouth, Edentulous: Total lack of teeth through disease or extraction.Chloroprene: Toxic, possibly carcinogenic, monomer of neoprene, a synthetic rubber; causes damage to skin, lungs, CNS, kidneys, liver, blood cells and fetuses. Synonym: 2-chlorobutadiene.Carcinoma, Adenoid Cystic: Carcinoma characterized by bands or cylinders of hyalinized or mucinous stroma separating or surrounded by nests or cords of small epithelial cells. When the cylinders occur within masses of epithelial cells, they give the tissue a perforated, sievelike, or cribriform appearance. Such tumors occur in the mammary glands, the mucous glands of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and the salivary glands. They are malignant but slow-growing, and tend to spread locally via the nerves. (Dorland, 27th ed)Mouth FloorMucin-5B: A gel-forming mucin that is predominantly expressed by submucosal glands of airway tissues and the SUBLINGUAL GLAND. It is one of the principal components of high molecular weight salivary mucin.Myoepithelioma: A usually benign tumor made up predominantly of myoepithelial cells.Adenolymphoma: A benign tumor characterized histologically by tall columnar epithelium within a lymphoid tissue stroma. It is usually found in the salivary glands, especially the parotid.Submandibular Gland NeoplasmsSalivary Glands, Minor: Accessory salivary glands located in the lip, cheek, tongue, floor of mouth, palate and intramaxillary.

(1/7) Acinic cell carcinoma found by recurrence of a mucous cyst in the sublingual gland.

This case report describes an acinic cell carcinoma found by a recurrence of a ranula in the sublingual gland. A 42-year-old male was admitted to the hospital of the Tokyo Dental College with a swelling in his right oral floor but without pain. The lesion was treated by windowing the same day under the diagnosis of a ranula, but the swelling appeared again at the same area eight months after the first operation. A resection was performed, and the specimen was sent to the clinical laboratory for pathological diagnosis. Proliferating serous cells were seen in part of the wall of an exudative mucous cyst. PAS staining was partially positive, and immunohistochemical staining for S-100 protein, lactoferrin, and amylase were also positive in cytoplasmic granules. This report concludes that the pathological diagnosis is beneficial in clarifying the reasons for the recurrence of a benign lesion.  (+info)

(2/7) Salivary glands: report of a rare case of myoepithelial carcinoma involving tongue base treated by CO2 Laser.

Epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma is a rare malignant tumour of the salivary glands. Herewith, the clinical evolution, anatomo-pathological characteristics and treatment adopted are described in a case occurring in the minor salivary glands of the tongue base. To our knowledge, this location has not been previously described in the literature. In fact, due to the rarity of the epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma, there is no uniformity of data in the literature and very different therapeutic strategies have been suggested. In this report, the possibility of applying conservative surgery using CO(2) Laser is proposed. Results obtained in the case described confirm that conservative surgery is feasible in this type of neoplastic lesion of the tongue.  (+info)

(7/7) Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection in salivary gland tumors: lytic EBV infection in nonmalignant epithelial cells surrounded by EBV-positive T-lymphoma cells.

To elucidate the association of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and salivary gland tumors, 114 cases of tumors of major salivary glands were investigated. EBV DNA was detected in all 6 cases of undifferentiated carcinoma and all 3 cases of T-cell lymphoma, but not in other tumor tissues. In situ hybridization studies for EBV DNA and EBV-encoded small RNA 1 (EBER1) showed specific localization of the EBV sequences to the undifferentiated carcinoma cells and T-lymphoma cells. Moreover, intense DNA signals were detected on nonneoplastic epithelial cells of T-lymphoma tissues. These epithelial cells were negative for EBER1 and expressed BZLF1, BALF2, and gp350/220 proteins associated with virus production. In contrast, nonmalignant epithelial cells surrounded by undifferentiated carcinoma cells showed no evidence of EBV infection or virus replication. These results indicate that there is an unusual association of salivary gland T-cell lymphomas with lytic EBV replication of nonmalignant epithelial cells.  (+info)


  • Neoplastic
  • In humans, salivary gland myoepitheliomas are classified based on morphology (plasmacytoid, spindle, stellate, clear or epithelioid) of the neoplastic cells into spindle cell myoepithelioma, clear cell myoepithelioma, etc. (askjpc.org)
  • No treatment is required, but neoplastic processes (metastatic maliganancy to the submandibular lymph nodes and/or salivary gland tumours) should be ruled out. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cystic
  • Macroscopically, the neoplasms are dark red to yellow, solid to cystic masses filled with mucus, blood and necrotic cellular debris. (askjpc.org)
  • epithelial
  • Procedures employed here illustrate an approach for reproducibly obtaining material for pathophysiological studies of salivary gland neoplasms, and other less common epithelial cancer types, that can be executed without compromising pathological examination of patient specimens. (biologists.org)
  • Non epithelial neoplasms are rare, representing about 2-5% of SGTs, and will not be discussed herein. (atlasgeneticsoncology.org)
  • The diversity of epithelial SGTs as well as their rarity and varied morphological aspects often makes diagnosing such neoplasms difficult. (atlasgeneticsoncology.org)
  • neck
  • 3,5) Clinically, the neoplasm presents as fluctuant swelling in the ventral aspect of the neck. (askjpc.org)
  • Sialadenitis
  • Sialadenitis is inflammation of a salivary gland, usually caused by infections, although there are other less common causes of inflammation such as irradiation, allergic reactions or trauma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chronic sclerosing sialadenitis is a chronic (long-lasting) inflammatory condition affecting the salivary gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • mandible
  • Its boundaries are: the mucosa of the floor of mouth and the tongue superiorly the mylohyoid muscle inferiorly the medial surface of the mandible anterolaterally the muscles along the base of the tongue (geniohyoid and genioglossus muscles) posteriorly medially, the intrinsic muscles of the tongue and genioglossus separate the two halves of the sublingual space. (wikipedia.org)
  • A periapical abscess may spread into the sublingual space if the apex of the tooth is above the level of attachment of mylohyoid, and the infection erodes through the lingual cortical plate of the mandible. (wikipedia.org)
  • The submandibular gland is located medial to the angle of the mandible, and it drains its mixture of serous and mucous saliva via the submandibular duct (Wharton duct) into the mouth, usually opening in a punctum located in the floor of mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Stafne defect (also termed Stafne's idiopathic bone cavity, Stafne bone cavity, Stafne bone cyst (misnomer), lingual mandibular salivary gland depression, lingual mandibular cortical defect, latent bone cyst, or static bone cyst) is a depression of the mandible on the lingual surface (the side nearest the tongue). (wikipedia.org)
  • It was previously known by many names, including static bone cyst, Stafne idiopathic bone cavity, and salivary gland inclusions in the mandible, An early case of Stafne's defect has been discovered in a 7th-century BC adult male individual from Klazomenai, one of the 12 cities of the Ionian League (now in modern Turkey). (wikipedia.org)
  • connective
  • Sometimes attempted biopsy of Stafne defects reveals an empty cavity (possibly because the gland was displaced at the time of biopsy), or other contents such as blood vessels, fat, lymphoid or connective tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • Signs and symptoms of a sublingual space infection might include a firm, painful swelling in the anterior part of the floor of the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • If small, the ranula may be left alone, but if larger and causing symptoms, excision of the sublingual gland may be indicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerves
  • There are many nerves in your face, and some of these nerves are embedded in the glands. (top10md.com)
  • The sublingual space contains: a number of blood vessels and nerves, e.g. the lingual artery and nerve, the hypoglossal nerve and the glossopharyngeal nerve. (wikipedia.org)
