Epidemiology of Salivary gland tumours in an Eastern Caribbean nation: A retrospective study

ConclusionParotid gland remains the most frequent site of salivary gland tumours (80%), with pleomorphic adenoma being the most common benign tumour. Triple assessment is still required to manage these cases adequately with stress on preoperative tissue diagnosis FNAB vs USS guided core biopsy.

ConclusionThe tumour is notorious to cause local recurrence and metastases; hence, an early and accurate diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive chemoradiation and regular periodic follow-ups are of utmost importance for the successful management of sebaceous gland carcinoma of eyelids.

Conclusion Marjolin ulcer is a high-risk skin tumor. Patients with positive lymph node or with moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma have high chances of recurrence. Frequent and intense follow-up is required for at least 2 years.

We present a case of MEC involving the palatal minor salivary gland of an adolescent patient successfully reconstructed using buccal myomucosal flap. The subject presented as a 17-year-old male with a painless left hard palatal mass found to have imaging suspicious for minor salivary gland tumor and punch biopsy consistent with a low-grade MEC. The subject underwent wide local excision of a 1.0 × 1.2 cm mass with 1.0 cm margins down to hard palate nasal mucosa excluding the abutting first and second molars of the ipsilateral maxilla. Pathology confirmed low-grade MEC confined to hard palate. Two weeks, thereafter, th...

Authors: Rebuzzi SE, Perrone F, Bersanelli M, Bregni G, Milella M, Buti S Abstract Introduction In recent years, the treatment landscape of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has been improved using immune-checkpoint inhibitors (ICI). Nevertheless, the number of patients experiencing clinical benefit from immunotherapy is still limited, while others obtain more benefit from tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). The identification of prognostic and predictive factors would be crucial to better select patients most likely to benefit from immunotherapy among the other potentially available therapeutic options. Areas c...
