(redirected from Lymphoepithelioma-Like Carcinoma)
A popular term for a poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma with non-malignant lymphoid stroma, formerly affecting the salivary glands and oesophagus of women indigenous to the Arctic Circle, related to the manner in which they prepared mukluks, i.e, chewing sealskins covered by ashes, a source of lye and a co-carcinogen

Furthermore, due to the few diagnosed cases of benign lesions of the BG in human pathology (HELLER & BEAN, 2014), probably associated with under reporting (SANTOS et al., 2006), the occurrence of benign neoplastic growths of this gland, such as nodular hyperplasia, adenoma, adenomyoma, and papilloma might be more reduced when compared with malignant neoplasia of the BG, including adenoid cystic carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma, and vulvar leiomyosarcoma (HELLER & BEAN, 2014; LEE et al., 2015).
