Ear Nose Throat J. 1993 Apr;72(4):264-9, 272-3.


The association of Warthin's tumor with another neoplasm of a different histological type in the same salivary gland is extremely rare. The literature includes 42 such cases to date. A case of malignant lymphoma developing within Warthin's tumor and another case of oncocytoma synchronous with Warthin's tumor in the same parotid gland are reported. The relation of Warthin's tumor to other neoplasms is discussed.
