Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Parotid Gland Associated with Concurrent Lymphoepithelial Cysts and Lymphoepithelial Lesion: Case Report and Proposed Histogenesis HEAD & NECK PATHOLOGY Zhou, J. H., Holsinger, F. 2015; 9 (2): 305–8


Lymphoepithelial cyst and lymphoepithelial lesion have similar histologic features and an affinity for the parotid gland. Though considered as different entities, both conditions arise from heterotopic salivary epithelial rests or inclusions in intra- or peri-parotid lymph nodes. We present a case of squamous cell carcinoma of parotid gland associated with concurrent lymphoepithelial cyst and lymphoepithelial lesion in a patient who was not infected with human immunodeficiency virus. We propose that lymphoepithelial cyst and lymphoepithelial lesion have a similar histogenesis.
