abstract

  • Although oncocytosis demonstrates some overlap with Warthin tumor and oncocytoma, it lacks the diagnostic findings specific to oncocytic salivary gland malignancies such as salivary duct carcinoma, acinic cell carcinoma, mammary analog secretory carcinoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Despite current limitations in the understanding of oncocytic salivary gland lesions, the presence of a paucicellular specimen comprised of small groups of oncocytic cells should raise the possibility of oncocytosis in the differential diagnosis and can favor it in elderly patients with multiple salivary nodules.
