ABSTRACT Sialolipoma is a new variant of salivary gland lipoma that was first proposed by Nagao et al (Histopathology 2001;38:30-36). Three cases of submandibular gland sialolipoma have been previously reported in the English literature, all of which were in adults. We report an unusual case of sialolipoma of the submandibular gland in a 3-year-old boy. This is the first reported case of submandibular gland sialolipoma in a child.

    ABSTRACT: Sialolipoma is a rare neoplasm of salivary glands, described as a distinct entity by Nagao et al. in 2001. Thirty-six cases of sialolipoma in minor and major salivary glands have been reported thus far in addition to the two new cases of sialolipoma arising in the major salivary glands in this study. Thirty-six cases of sialolipoma published in English language reports were analyzed considering gender, age, location, size, duration of symptoms, treatment mode, follow-up, and histologic findings. Congenital sialolipomas were considered in this study. The first case occurred in a 45-year-old female and presented as a localized swelling in right parotid area. The second case occurred in an 18-year-old female as a swelling in the left parotid region. On histopathological examination, these lesions were diagnosed as sialolipoma.

    ABSTRACT: Salivary glands are the first organs of digestion secreting their digestive juices into the oral cavity. Parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands are the major paired salivary glands in the decreasing order of their size. In addition, multiple small minor salivary glands are noted randomly distributed in the upper aerodigestive tract, including paranasal sinuses and parapharyngeal spaces. The imaging is directed to the major salivary glands. Commonly used imaging methods include plain radiography and conventional sialography. Recently, high-resolution ultrasonography (HRUS) is being increasingly used for targeted salivary gland imaging. However, the advent of cross-sectional imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have revolutionized the imaging of salivary glands. This article illustrates the role of imaging in evaluating the variegated disease pattern of the major salivary glands.

    ABSTRACT: Although lipomas are common soft tissue tumors, few cases of lipoma or its variants have been reported in the oral cavity. We here described the clinical, histological, and immunohistochemical features of 24 cases of oral lipoma obtained from medical records at Nagasaki University Hospital between 1977 and 2010, and also retrospectively reviewed 603 cases of oral lipoma reported in the English literatures. The patients examined comprised 11 men and 13 women with a mean age of 59 years, ranging from 31 to 90 years. The main sites involved were the buccal mucosa (n = 9), followed by the tongue (n = 4), lip and retromolar area (n = 3), floor of the mouth (n = 2), and gingiva (n = 1). The mean tumor size was 2.0 cm, ranging from 0.2 to 5 cm. Histological analysis revealed 20 cases of lipoma, 2 cases of fibrolipoma, and one case each of intramuscular lipoma and spindle cell lipoma. Twenty-three cases were treated surgically while one case underwent biopsy and follow-up. Recurrence was not observed in any case. We reviewed the English literatures, and similar results were obtained. In immunohistochemical analysis, PCNA and ki-67 expression indices were higher in intramuscular lipoma cases than in its variants. Especially, it showed that a long time follow-up may be necessary in ki-67 positive cases.
