The coexistence of neoplasms was found more frequently in women and at a younger age.[sup] The literature reported that RCCs that coexisted with AMLs mostly were double primary tumors, and more rarely collision tumor
. There are only six case reports about AML and RCC coexisting in the same tumor mass.
The present case had an admixture of DA component with conventional ameloblastoma tissue, which is why we consider that it was a modulated tumor rather than a collision tumor
Of note, the term basosquamous carcinoma is sometimes used synonymously for metatypical BCC but may also describe collision tumors
between BCC and squamous cell carcinoma; therefore, this term is best accompanied by clarification of the intended definition.
A diagnosis of collision tumor
of neurofibroma with chondroid syringoma was made.
For the collision tumor
theory to hold would require an unlikely occurrence-namely, that multiple, sequential carcinogenic events in two or more independent cell types would result in a malignant transformation of each.
The possibility of a collision tumor
was considered but was subordinated primarily because of the intimate association of the various elements of the lesion and the lack of any other known malignancies.
In the case of the patient with the collision tumor
, the grossly apparent mass (a well-demarcated 1.2 x 1.1 x 1.0-cm firm area within a 3.5 x 2.5 x 1.5-cm excisional biopsy) was predominantly composed of a 1.0-cm GCT.
Even if we consider this suggestion to be true, the question of whether the tumor is a malignant meningioma or a collision tumor
still remains unanswered.
The "collision tumor
" theory suggests that 2 distinct malignancies coexist and then collide and intermingle.
