7,9) The major differential diagnoses of MASC are acinic cell carcinomas (ACCs); mucoepidermoid carcinomas (MECs); adenocarcinomas, not otherwise specified; and cystadenocarcinomas.
Some of these lesions are primary laryngeal adenocarcinomas, metastatic adenocarcinoma, salivary glandular tumours like acinic cell carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma or adenoid cystic carcinoma of the larynx.
Out of the 40 cases, 22 were pleomorphic adenoma, 6 were of chronic sialadenitis, 2 were Warthin's tumours, 6 were mucoepidermoid carcinomas, 4 were acinic cell carcinomas.
Out of 78 malignant Lacrimal gland tumours, 35 (9M, 26F) were Adenoid cystic carcinoma presenting in ages 14 to 75 years (Mean Age=31y), 25 (10M, 15F) were Adenocarcinoma with age range 4 to 72 years (Mean Age=40y), 15 were Lacrimal gland lymphoma (6M, 9F) with age range of 20 to 65 years (Mean Age=49y), 2 cases (2M) were of Acinic cell carcinoma (2.

Differential diagnosis: Includes acinic cell carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, and low-grade cribriform cystadenocarcinoma of the salivary gland.
I was told it was a cancer called Acinic Cell Carcinoma and that without surgery to remove it, I could die within three months.
PLAG1 upregulation can also be assessed by immunohistochemistry; most PAs (94%) are strongly immunoreactive for PLAG1, [15] whereas PLAG1 is negative in most SG carcinomas, including AdCC, MEC, and acinic cell carcinoma (ACC).
Regarding the clinical aspects, all benign tumors were nodules, whereas malignant tumors were nodules in 19 cases (11 cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma, four cases of mucoepidermoid carcinoma and four cases of acinic cell carcinoma) and ulcerated nodules in five cases (three cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma, one case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma and one case of acinic cell carcinoma).
2) The incidence of salivary tumors in children is not clearly defined; at our institution, a previous 14-year retrospective study found 92% of the salivary gland tumors excised were pleomorphic adenomas, with the other tumors being acinic cell carcinomas.
Among the malignant tumours, the most common is adenoid cystic carcinoma, while the others are mucoepidermoid carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, acinic cell tumour, lymphoma and malignant mixed tumour.
