1/6. Plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular gland.

    A rare plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular gland in a patient with neurofibromatosis is presented. The clinical manifestations of the disease are reviewed. The need for early diagnosis of neurofibroma is emphasized because of malignant transformation.

2/6. Plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular salivary gland in a child.

    Plexiform neurofibromas in major salivary glands are rarely described. In the literature, most reported tumours have been present in the parotid gland region. A three-year-old boy with a family history of neurofibromatosis presented with a rapidly growing left submandibular mass. The clinical diagnosis was that of a neurofibroma rather than a primary salivary gland tumour. Resection of the lesion revealed a plexiform neurofibroma involving the submandibular gland. Although these tumours have a neurogenic rather than a salivary gland origin, they must be considered in the differential diagnosis of a salivary gland lesion in a patient with a history of neurofibromatosis.

3/6. April 2002: 35-year-old healthy man with enlarging right parotid mass.

    The April 2002 Case of the Month (COM). 35-year-old healthy man developed a mass in the right parotid gland. A superifical parotidectomy was performed for a 4.5 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm mass involving the intraparotid facial nerve. Grossly the tumor was multinodular, smooth and yellow with normal surrounding salivary gland. Microscopically, the tumor showed expanding nodules composed of proliferating fibroblasts, schwann cells, and perineural-like cells in a myxoid stroma. Normal peripheral nerve twigs were identified in the periphery of the tumor. There was no increased mitotic activity, cellularity or nuclear pleomorphism. S-100 immunohistochemical stain was positive. The tumor was diagnosed as a solitary plexiform neurofibroma. Plexiform neurofibromas in this area have been described in children with von Recklinghausen's disease or neurofibromatosis 1 (NF 1). Plexiform neurofibromas typically involve deep seated nerve trunks and is considered pathognomonic for NF 1. This unusual case represents a solitary variant of plexiform neurofibroma presenting as a parotid mass in an adult patient without a personal stigmata or family history of NF 1.

4/6. Plexiform neurofibroma of the cheek mucosa. A case report.

    The case reported deals with a solitary plexiform neurofibroma affecting the cheek submucosa. Neurofibroma is an uncommon tumor which rarely appears in oral cavity but it represents the most common neurogenic tumor. Furthermore, plexiform variety is less frequent. Clinically, oral neurofibromas usually appears as anodyne and asintomatic lesions. Sometimes, they produce nervous compression. In this case, tumor is big but asintomatic. There is no definitive radiologic image. It has association with polyglandular syndromes and phacomatosis. The treatment of choice is excision. There are doubts of the surgical results so that some authors are looking for new non-surgical treatments. The clinical characteristics, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment are described as soon as a bibliographic revision.

5/6. CT features of plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular gland.

    Plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular gland is an extremely rare tumor. We report the CT findings in a 6-year-old girl with type 1 neurofibromatosis who had a histopathologically proven submandibular gland plexiform neurofibroma. A "branching" hypodense mass was noted on the CT scan infiltrating the submandibular gland and the adjacent spaces of the neck. CT could be extremely valuable in suggesting the diagnosis.

6/6. Solitary plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular salivary gland.

    Neurofibroma affecting the major salivary gland is uncommon. This tumour is particularly rare in the submandibular and sublingual gland. Here, a case of solitary plexiform neurofibroma of the submandibular gland without any other manifestations of von Recklinghausen's disease is presented. It is probably the first case report of this tumour invading the submandibular gland in a solitary form.
