Author: Dave P.N., Parikh U.R., Goswami H.M., Jobanputra G.P., Panchal N.V., Shah A.M.
Objective: The aim of the present study is to determine the incidence of Parotid gland lesions and study their morphology.
Material and Method: A study of 60 cases of Parotid gland tumors from January 2012 to December 2014 was carried out in pathology department of our hospital. A tissue bit was taken after detailed clinical history and physical examination. After routine tissue processing and H and E staining, histopathological diagnosis was made.
Results: Prevalence of salivary gland tumors in our study was 0.47 %. Benign salivary gland tumors comprised 71.6 % of all parotid gland tumors and malignant tumors accounted for 28.4 %. Pleomorphic adenoma was 46.67% and Mucoepidermoid carcinoma was11.67% of all Parotid gland neoplasms. Most of the benign neoplasms occurred in 3rd decade, while the malignant neoplasms more common in 5th decade. Males were more commonly affected than females.
Conclusion: Parotid gland tumors are relatively less common and they exhibit a wide variety of microscopic appearances even within one particular lesion. Accurate diagnosis is essential as parotid gland neoplasms have diverse clinical and prognostic outcomes.
