Surgical ciliated cyst of maxilla - report of a case
K Rajkumar, SS Sharma, G Anuradha, Prasanna Lakshmi
January-June 2003, 7(1):8-10
The surgical ciliated cyst is a very rare cyst of the maxillary antrum and accounts for about 1.5% of all the oral cysts. This cyst occurs as a delayed complication after radical surgical intervention in the maxillary sinus. Many authors have suggested that this cyst occurs mainly in middle decades and presents as a nonspecific, poorly localized pain occurring in the maxilla. The treatment of choice is enucleation. Here we report a case of surgical ciliated cyst in a 27 yrs old female patient, in
which the etiology is proposed to be traumatic extraction, which is quiet rare.

An unusual case of CGCG which occurred in the posterior region of maxilla was encountered. Biopsy was taken with a provisional diagnosis of adenoma. But histopathology confirmed the case as CGCG.

TP Sajeevan, Joshua Elizabeth, TR Saraswathi, K Ranganathan
January-June 2003, 7(1):21-24
This report describes the prevalence of salivary gland lesions reported in the Department of Oral Pathology, Ragas Dental College from 1993 to 2001. In the period of 9 years, 1118 cases were subjected to histopathological examination. Of these 30 cases (2.68%) were salivary gland lesions. Of the 30, 60%was mucous extravasation cyst, 20% salivary gland neoplasm, 16.67% sialadenitis and 3.3% Sjogren's syndrome. These lesions showed no statistical significant difference in age, sex and site distribution, due to limited number of cases, except mucous extravasation cyst, which showed statistical significance in relation to sex.

may resemble a pleomorphic adenoma. Herewith we present a case of acinic cell adenocarcinoma in a 60 year old male who reported with a lobulated swelling in the parotid region, which was clinically diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma or carcinoma ex-pleomorphic adenoma and histologically diagnosed as acinic cell adenocarcinoma.
