Plasmacytoid myoepithelioma of the soft palate: a review of the literature and report of a case with immunohistochemical findings

Myoepitheliomas of salivary glands are rare neoplasms,
accounting for less than 1% of all salivary
gland tumors. They are classified into four cells
types: epithelioid, spindle, clear, and plasmacytoid.
Among them, the plasmacytoid cell type appears to
have a predilection for the oral cavity, especially the
palate. We presented a 32-year-old man with plasmacytoid
myoepithelioma arising in the soft palate,
together with a brief discussion of the clinicopathologic
features and differential diagnosis in the light
of the literature.

Keywords: Myoepithelioma/pathology/surgery; palatal neoplasms/pathology; salivary gland neoplasms/pathology.
