MATAMALA S, MARÍA ANGÉLICA; GONZALEZ P, MIGUEL; ROSSEL D, GONZALO  y  NIEME S, CONSTANZA. Intraoral lesions of minor salivary glands. Analysis of 59 patients. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.4, pp. 335-340. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262012000400002.

Background: Most salivary gland lesions are benign. Tumors are uncommon. Pleomorphic adenoma and cystic adenoid carcinoma are the most common benign and malignant lesions. Alm: To assess the incidence management and evolution of intraoral lesions among patients consulting in a head and neck surgical service. Material and Methods: Retrospective review of medical records of patients consulting for intraoral lesions of minor salivary glands between 1975 and 2009 in a head and neck surgical service. Results: Thirty five females and 24 males are reported. Forty eight (81%) had benign lesions. Of these, 35 (73%). were non neoplastic lesions. Eleven patients had malignant lesions. Of these, four (36%) had a mucoepidermoid carcinoma, two (18%) had an adenoid-cystic carcinoma, two (18%) had an acinous cell carcinoma and one patient each had an undifferentiated carcinoma, an adenocarcinoma and an epidermoid carcinoma. Conclusions: In this series of patients, benign lesions predominated. Benign lesions were excised and the management of malignant lesions depended on the type of tumor.
