Salivary dermal analogue tumors arising in lymph nodes.


Dermal analogue tumor, an unusual type of monomorphic salivary adenoma, occurs in the parotid gland and rarely in other salivary tissues. This report describes three patients with dermal analogue tumors arising from ectopic salivary tissue in lymph nodes. Two tumors appeared in the periparotid lymph nodes and one in the lateral upper cervical region. All of the patients were men, aged 50 to 60 years, who all had a painless neck mass for 1 year or longer. Currently, the patients are free of disease 14, 3, and 2 years, respectively, after surgical excision. Dermal analogue monomorphic adenomas join several other salivary tumors in possible intranodal origin and should not be confused with metastases.
