Minor salivary gland squamous cell carcinoma of the lower lip demonstrating striking perineural invasion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

Abstract

Abstract Squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) of minor salivary gland origin are extremely rare. We present an unusual case of a 29-year-old female patient who presented with a well-differentiated SCC of minor salivary gland origin arising in the lower lip. Wedge resections of the lip, including bilateral mental nerve excision, were required to clear the tumor because of striking pathological evidence of perineural invasion distant from the primary tumor site.
