Mucoepidermoid carcinoma MEC is the most common malignant neoplasm of major and minor salivary glands Lopes et al, The biological features and clinical behavior of mucoepidermoid carcinomas are widely variable and poorly understood.

However, short series or individual case reports have identified this tumour in the maxilla, mandible, breast tissue and thymus. MECs were staged according mucorpidermoide the TNM classification of malignant tumors, 12 and minor salivary gland tumors were staged according to their site of origin in a similar fashion to squamous cell carcinomas. Low grade tumors seem to arise more often in minor salivary glands, which according to some authors are detected at earlier stages, probably due to the less aggressive growth in addition to a better visible tumor site.


Evaluation and application of grading criteria in cases. MEC usually occurs in the head and neck region but it has been reported in other anatomical regions; for example, distant glandular structures and unlikely sites such as the anal region, esophagus and tracheobronchial mucosa.

The broad age range observed in our series supports that reported in literature. Epithelium and epithelial tissue.

The mucoepidermoid carcinoma generally shows an extremely aggressive pattern for high-grade tumors, whereas its respectivee low-grade counterpart is often indolent and slow-growing.
