Abstract :

Oncocytic carcinoma (OC) is an unusual proliferation of cytomorphologically malignant oncocytes and adenocarcinomatous architecture phenotypes mainly found in glandular tissue, accounting for 0.5% of all epithelial salivary gland malignancies and 0.18% of all epithelial salivary gland tumors. The terms oncocytic carcinoma, oncocytic adenocarcinoma, malignant oncocytoma and malignant oxyphilic adenoma are synonymous. The majority of OC cases have occurred in the parotid glands, but tumors that involved the submandibular gland and minor glands of the palate have also been described. We present a case of Oncocytic carcinoma of parotid gland in a 60 year old female who underwent superficial parotidectomy
