Abstract

We describe the case of an oncocytic papillary cystadenoma with mucinous differentiation of the parotid gland in a 64-year-old male. Histologically, the tumor exhibited distinctive areas of intracystic papillary growth pattern with microcystic and macrocystic spaces containing mucinous secretions and small crystals. The cyst wall and papillary fronds were lined by oncocytic admixed with numerous mucocytes. Lymphoid tissue and invasive features were not identified. The tumor showed strong expression of CK7 and mammaglobin in oncocytes, and BRST-2 and MUC4 in mucocytes. p63, ER, PR, SOX10, DOG-1, and S100 stains were negative. No rearrangement of the MAML2 gene region or ETV6-NTRK3 fusion transcript was detected. The diagnosis of oncocytic papillary tumor with prominent mucinous differentiation is particularly problematic owing to the large number of potential mimics and should prompt consideration of appropriate molecular studies.
