Acinic cell carcinoma of the nasal cavity: A case report

Volume: 27 - Issue: 3

Firstpage: 191 - Lastpage: 196

T. Takimoto - M. Kano - R. Umeda

Acinic cell carcinoma is a relatively rare neoplasm of the salivary glands. These
tumours account for between 2.3 and 4% of all tumours of the major salivary
glands (Foote and Fraxel, 1953). Their incidence in salivary tissue other than the
major salivary glands is low and dominated by origin from minor salivary glands
of the oral cavity (Inoue et al., 1984). On the other hand, the first documented
case of acinic cell carcinoma of the sinonasal tract was presented by Goldman and
Manace (1971). Since then, only seven cases have been reported in the literature
(Manace and Goldman, 1971; Spiro et al., 1973; Sakai et al., 1977; Perzin et al.,
1981; Ordonez and Batsakis, 1986; Tomomatsu et al., 1986; Hanada et al., 1988)
(Tabe 1).
In this report, the eighth case of acinic cell carcinoma arising in the sinonasal
tract is reported.
