Resumen

VALENTIN GONZALEZ, Federico et al. Adenocystic carcinoma of the sublingual gland. On the purpose of a case. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2013, vol.35, n.2, pp.182-187. ISSN 1684-1824.

The salivary gland tumors are relatively infrequent, being only 1 % of the head and neck tumors; the sublingual gland tumors are even more unusual, although their diagnosis is frequently malignant. The purpose of the current work is presenting a clinical case carrying a sublingual gland adenocystic carcinoma on the left side of the mouth bottom. Clinically, there it was a long lesion, over the course of the Wharton’s duct, with an asymptomatic, normal, brilliant and smooth color. The lesion was simply removed and the Department of Pathologic Anatomy confirmed the diagnosis. We reviewed the national and international literature on these lesions, finding scarce references because of its unusualness.  The patient’s evolution is satisfactory when 16 months have passed from the surgery.
