Intraoral papillary squamous cell tumor of the soft palate with features of sialadenoma papilliferum-? malignant sialadenoma papilliferum.


An unusual, recurring, squamous papillary tumor involving and possibly arising from minor salivary gland excretory ducts in the palate is presented. Similarity to sialadenoma papilliferum and upper respiratory tract papillomatosis is noted. A paraglandular cystic mass with some resemblance to the palatal lesion, and a solitary lymph node with papillary squamous epithelial deposits was found in a radical neck dissection. We suggest that the lymph node lesion represents a metastasis which may have arisen from the palatal lesion, and therefore propose the concept of a possible malignant analogue of sialadenoma papilliferum.
