    This report describes an unusual case of a mucoepidermoid carcinoma developing in a patient with congenital left upper lobe agenesis. Mucoepidermoid tumours most often develop in major bronchi and present as lobar collapse, post-obstructive pneumonia or as a mass lesion on chest radiography. On...

    Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the maxillary sinus is a rare malignancy of the head and neck. The location of this tumour near vital structures and its large size at presentation makes surgical resection with negative margins challenging. In incurable cases, relief from symptoms such as epistaxis...

    Mucoepidermoid carcinomas mostly occur in the major salivary glands, the minor salivary glands of oral cavity and in the lacrimal glands. These tumours rarely occur in the sino-nasal tract. When they occur in the sino-nasal tract, the most frequent site is the maxillary antrum, followed by the...

    Mucoepidermoid carcinoma is more commonly associated with the major and minor salivary glands. Mucoepidermoid carcinomas have been reported at atypical sites, including the larynx, breast, eustachian tube of the ear, bronchi of the lungs, and thyroid. Laryngeal mucoeopidermoid carcinoma is an...
