Case Study
Warthin's tumors are the second most frequent benign tumors of the parotid gland representing 6-10% of all tumors of the salivary glands. Multicentric Warthin's tumors are more common than any other salivary gland tumor. Most of the multifocal Warthin's tumors are unilateral, whereas bilateral Warthin's tumors are much more uncommon; bilateral Warthin's tumors are metachronous with few synchronous cases having been described in the literature.

    Papillary cystadenomas of the salivary gland are uncommon, benign, encapsulated or well-circumscribed, multicystic tumors with intracystic papillations. In a large review, papillary cystadenoma constituted 2% of all minor salivary gland tumors. The present study reports an extremely rare case of...

    Warthin tumor (papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum) is a benign salivary gland tumor involving almost exclusively the parotid gland. The lip is a very unusual location for this type of tumor, which develops only rarely in minor salivary glands. The case of 42-year-old woman with Warthin tumor...

    Cystadenoma is a rare benign salivary gland tumor that chiefly originates in the minor salivary glands as a cystic growth with papillary projections into the cystic lumen without the lymphoid element. It is further classified into two histopathological variants that have been recognized by World...
