1/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia.

    Three cases of necrotizing sialometaplasia of minor salivary glands are presented. Clinically and pathologically, this nonneoplastic lesion of the palate can be easily mistaken for carcinoma. The main histologic features are localized infarction of minor salivary glands and extensive squamous metaplasia with retention of the lobular architecture of the involved glands. The possible etiologic factors are discussed.

2/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia. Report of a case.

    Necrotizing sialometaplasia occurred in a 46-year-old woman. This is an uncommon benign disease that typically begins with an ulcerated lesion on the hard palate and surrounding tissues. Clinical and microscopic findings show obvious similarity with a malignant neoplasm. Necrotizing sialometapiasis is a benign minor salivary gland disease. It is important since it may easily be confused with squamous cell carcinoma and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.

3/13. radiation-induced squamous sialometaplasia.

    We describe a patient with recurrent acantholytic squamous cell carcinoma following radiation therapy. Mohs micrographic sections revealed extensive squamous sialometaplasia showing striking histologic similarity to the patient's squamous cell carcinoma. Criteria necessary to differentiate squamous sialometaplasia from neoplasm are presented. This differentiation is important to ensure adequate tumor resection without unnecessary sacrifice of tumor-free tissue.

4/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia. A review of the literature and report of two additional cases.

    Necrotizing sialometaplasia is a nonneoplastic, inflammatory, variably ulcerated, occasionally bilateral, self-healing lesion of human salivary glands which is often confused clinically and histologically with squamous cell or mucoepidermoid carcinoma. On the basis of thirty-three documented cases, the lesion occurs primarily in the minor salivary glands of the palate (87.9 percent), with 63.6 percent arising in the fifth and sixth decades (average age 46.0 years, range 22 to 68 years). There is a marked predilection for males (ratio of males to females. 2.7:1) and a questionable predominance in Caucasians (60.6 percent). Numerous etiologic factors have been proposed; however, on the basis of previous animal experimentation, the lesion appears to be infarctive in nature.

5/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia affecting the minor labial glands.

    A case of necrotizing sialometaplasia of the lower lip, a previously unreported location for this lesion, is presented. In the past, other cases of this benign process occuring in this site may have been confused with squamous-cell or mucoepidermoid carcinoma. In order to arrive at the correct diagnosis, an ample biopsy of the lesion is mandatory.

6/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia.

    An example of palatal necrotizing sialometaplasia is presented, and the clinical and microscopic features suggestive of squamous-cell carcinoma and mucoepidermal carcinoma are noted. The patient's health status, as shown by a rather thorough work-up, was unremarkable during the period which would seem to preclude a systemic etiology of this disease. The resolution of the lesion with minimal therapy is documented.

7/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia.

    Three additional cases of necrotizing sialometaplasia are discussed. Clinical appearance of the lesion is not diagnostic. microscopy shows pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia, squamous metaplasia, and acinar necrosis. No atypia is seen. Mucoepidermoid and squamous cell carcinoma are frequent wrong diagnoses. All reported lesions have healed without recurrence regardless of therapy.

8/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia. A condition simulating malignancy.

    Necrotizing sialometaplasia occurred in a 55-year-old woman. The ulcerated lesion on the hard palate was treated conservatively and resolved spontaneously in about three months. The histology of the lesion consisted of coagulative necrosis of the salivary gland lobules and prominent squamous metaplasia within adjacent viable lobules. Since this benign lesion has frequently been mistaken for mucoepidermoid carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, recognition of it may spare the patient a radical surgical procedure.

9/13. Asymptomatic, nonulcerated swelling of the posterior hard palate.

    It is very important for clinicians to understand that nonulcerated, firm, dome-shaped, nonpainful palatal swellings, if not inflammatory in nature, are probably arising in the palatal accessory salivary glands. The differential diagnosis must include benign mixed tumors; adenoid cystic carcinoma, and necrotizing sialometaplasia, which is usually ulcerated. Statistically, the possibility that the lesion is malignant is slightly greater than the possibility that it is benign. Incisional biopsy must be performed on these lesions to determine the proper treatment and management regimen.

10/13. Necrotizing sialometaplasia.

    Necrotizing sialometaplasia is a benign inflammatory disease of salivary gland origin. Because of its clinical and histologic resemblance to squamous cell carcinoma, this disease must be recognized. The cause is unknown, but it may be related to oral trauma, tobacco use or inadequate blood supply. The lesion heals spontaneously, regardless of therapy, in two to eight weeks.
