Abstract
Mucinous adenocarcinoma (MAC) is a rare malignant neoplasm that occasionally occurs in the large intestine (colon), followed by the pancreas, ovary, lung, prostate, and breast. It is characterized by large amounts of extracellular epithelial mucin that contains tumor cell nests. We herein present a unique case of MAC originating from minor salivary gland, the second to be reported in literature in South Korea. We report a case of MAC in the tongue considered to be developed from minor salivary gland with a review of literature.
Key Words: Tongue, Salivary gland tumor, Adenocarcinoma, Mucinous, Head and neck cancer
