CLEAR CELL CARCINOMA OF MINOR SALIVARY GLAND ORIGIN: A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY

Safia Rana, Jairajpuri S Zeeba, P K Raina, Sujata Jetley.

Abstract
Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of salivary gland origin is an extremely rare low-grade carcinoma. It occurs in the minor salivary glands. This is a recent addition to the World Health Organisation (WHO) classification of salivary gland tumours and defines it as a malignant epithelial neoplasm with single monomorphic population of cells having optically clear cytoplasm on standard Hematoxylin & Eosin (H & E) stain. We hereby, report an interesting case of CCC of minor salivary gland origin initially misdiagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma and have drawn the comparisons from other salivary gland tumours with a minor clear cell component.

Key words: Clear cell, carcinoma, salivary gland
