Tubular variants of basal cell adenoma (TVBCA) still contains a layer of basal or myoepithelial cells.
Bahrami et al (96) studied PLAG1 expression by immunostaining and PLAG1 gene rearrangement by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in 22 carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenomas along with 39 cases representing various benign and malignant salivary gland neoplasms: adenocarcinomas, not otherwise specified (4 cases); mucoepidermoid carcinomas (8 cases); adenoid cystic carcinomas (7 cases); salivary duct carcinomas (4 cases); epithelial-myoepithelial carcinomas (2 cases); polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (1 case); myoepithelial carcinoma (1 case); adenoid cystic carcinoma (1 case); basaloid carcinoma (1 case); pleomorphic adenomas (5 cases); basal cell adenomas (4 cases); and low-grade salivary gland neoplasm, not otherwise specified (1 case).
In other cases, PLGA can be indistinguishable from PA and basal cell adenoma, especially the tubulotrabecular variant.
Daley TD: The use of the term monomorphic adenoma, basal cell adenoma and canalicular adenoma as applied to salivary gland tumors.
Benign neoplasms consisted of 24 pleomorphic adenomas, four cases of basal cell adenoma, two cases each of warthin tumor, myoepithelioma, schwannoma & inflammatory pseudotumor & one case each of hemangioma & lipoma were seen.
Among the 32 FNAC reports as pleomorphic adenoma 2 turned out to be basal cell adenomas and in 1 the histopathological report was adenocarcinoma (Table 11).
