Incisional and Excisional Biopsy

Histological examination revealed an infiltrative salivary gland neoplasm of epithelial origin. It is made up of uniform and basaloid cells with hyperchromatic nuclei. These cells are arranged in nests and lobules with a cribriform pattern (Fig 2). The neoplastic cells show no evidence of pleomorphism or mitosis and yet they are infiltrative of the surrounding connective tissue, salivary gland lobules and bone (Fig 3). The morphology of the surgical specimen was similar to that of the incisional biopsy.
