Abstract:   (48 Views)
  • Hyalinizing clear cell carcinoma (HCCC) usually affects minor salivary glands. It rarely occurs in major salivary glands. HCCCis difficult to diagnose in Fine Needle Aspiration cytology (FNAC). The possibility of metastasis from other primary sites should be rejected during the management of these tumors. An elderly manpresented with insidious onset, and gradual progressive painless swelling arising from the deep lobe of the parotid gland. FNAC, which was performedtwice with UltrasoundGuidance(USG), could not provide much detail about the type of tumor. Total conservative parotidectomy was conducted. These rare tumors cause significant challenges to physicians. Thehigh index of suspicion and combined efforts ofthe multidisciplinary team are pivotal in management.
