ABSTRACT
Abstract: Primary lung carcinomas showing features of salivary gland-type neoplasms are rare. Many are mucoepidermoid carcinomas and adenoid cystic carcinomas. Myoepithelial carcinoma of the lung is extremely rare, and in the WHO classification is classified as ‘Others’ among carcinomas of the salivary gland. The pertinent literature is restricted to a few pathological reports, and hardly any clinical examinations have been performed. Here we report a resected case of myoepithelial carcinoma of the lung, including details of clinical examination, with a review of previously documented cases.
