abstract

  • Monomorphic adenomas are a morphologically complex group of salivary gland tumors. Two unusual examples, one a trabecular and the other a solid form of basal cell adenoma, reveal the development of a cribriform growth pattern focally in the former example and diffusely in the latter. They illustrate the potential for cellular differentiation within this subgroup, organization of synthetic products by the tumor cells, and the histologic criteria useful for the distinction of basal cell adenoma from adenoid cystic carcinoma.
