Abstract

Carcinoma ex Pleomorphic Adenoma (Ca ex PA) is a rare malignancy accounting for 3.6% of all salivary gland neoplasms. Malignant component of Ca ex PA is most often adenocarcinoma, Not Otherwise Specified (NOS). Myoepithelial carcinoma is a rare subtype of Ca ex PA. We present a case of myoepithelial Ca ex PA firstly due to its low prevelance and secondly due to the frequent diagnostic conundrum it poses to the clinicians and pathologists.

Keywords

Carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma, Myoepithelial carcinoma, Parotid region
