ABSTRACT Sialoblastoma is a rare salivary neoplasm which presents either congenitally or during early infancy. It was originally considered a benign neoplasm, however a number of reported cases have documented locoregional recurrence and distant metastases. Currently, there is no consensus on the appropriate treatment for this neoplasm. We report on long term follow-up of a patient with metastatic sialoblastoma, and a brief discussion of the possible treatment modalities currently being considered.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate outcome of surgical excision of sialoblastoma in the parotid gland in newborn. This was a retrospective review of 3 pediatric patients with sialoblastoma in the parotid gland that underwent surgical resections. All patients are newborn boys. The lesions ranged from 5cm×5cm to 8cm×5cm in size. The tumor was resected en bloc, and the facial nerve was preserved. None surgical complications occurred. The mean follow-up was 34 months; none patients had recurrent lesions. Surgical dissection of sialoblastoma in the parotid gland in the newborn is most efficient and safe.

    ABSTRACT: Sialoblastoma is a rare congenital tumour of the salivary glands arising mainly from the parotid gland. It is usually diagnosed at birth or shortly thereafter with a significant variability in histological appearance and clinical course. In extensive search of PubMed indexed journals, we got 46 cases of "sialobalstoma/embryoma/congenital basal adenoma", with one case was of German literature and three additional cases of adult sialobalstoma. This article has extensively reviewed the clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemical features, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and Computerized Tomography (CT) findings, treatment and prognosis.
