Systematic review of mammary analog secretory carcinoma of salivary glands at 7 years after description

ABSTRACT

Background

Mammary analog secretory carcinoma of the salivary glands (MASCSG) is a newly introduced malignant tumor of the salivary glands. For decades, it has been confused with acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) of the salivary glands.

Methods

All reported cases of MASCSG were surveyed from 2010 until January 2017. The collected data was compiled and computationally processed to describe the clinical parameters of MASCSG. Its epidemiology was also mapped. Moreover, inaccurate data was highlighted.

Results

Clinically implicating, this article tackles simply the several clinical findings of MASCSG so that our contemporary nosology, at 7 years after description, can be updated. The cytogenetic, histologic, and immunohistochemical details are also defined.

Conclusion

The available data about MASCSG is sufficient enough to diagnose it with no need to investigate the ETV6-NTRK3 translocation. Although high-grade malignancy and distant metastases were rarely reported, a rapt attention should be paid both to the nature of this tumor and to the indicated close follow-up of such cases, especially when necrosis, increased mitotic activity, and other classic caveats are conspicuous. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
