Mammary Analogue Secretory Carcinoma of Minor Salivary Glands: A Rare Case Series and Review of the Literature

Ann Clin Lab Sci. 2018 Jan;48(1):94-99.


Mammary analogue secretory carcinoma (MASC) is a rare salivary gland tumor that recapitulates the cytomorphology, immunophenotype, and genetics of an equally rare malignancy of the breast, secretory carcinoma (SC). Here we present two cases of MASC of minor salivary glands from a single institutional experience.
