Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of palate - a rare entity
AbstractMucoepidermoid carcinomas (MEC) of minor salivary gland origin are rare in children and adolescents. A 17-year young male, reported with a painless swelling in the left posterior area of the hard palate since 6 months. Several clinical, radiographic, and histopathological investigations were carried out. Incisional biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of lesion as low grade MEC of the palate following which a wide surgical excision with adjacent free margins was carried out. This case report highlights the need for considering malignant lesions in the differential diagnosis of palatal swellings even in younger age groups.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
