Abstract

Salivary glands located in the head and neck area are known to have different lesions with prominent oncocytic features. Fine needle aspiration is usually the initial approach in the management of these lesions, whether they represent neoplastic or non-neoplastic processes. Owing to the limited material present upon cytopathologic examination, knowledge of variants and subtypes of various oncocytic lesions that can occur in this area is of major importance to provide the most accurate interpretation to the patients and clinicians. In this article, we selected rare lesions of the salivary glands that may exhibit oncocytic changes, and provided a brief discussion of each one of them, with emphasis on challenges in navigating the differential diagnosis that these cases may pose, from the cytopathology standpoint.
