A Case of Lacrimal Gland Ductal Carcinoma With Regional Lymph Node Metastasis.

Summary of "A Case of Lacrimal Gland Ductal Carcinoma With Regional Lymph Node Metastasis."

Ductal carcinoma of the lacrimal gland is a very rare and aggressive neoplasm, with clinical and histopathologic similarities to salivary ductal carcinoma. Of the 25 previously reported cases, 2 patients had metastases to local lymph nodes confirmed on pathologic examination. The authors now report the clinical presentation, histopathologic and immunohistochemical features, and the treatment of a third patient with lacrimal gland ductal carcinoma with spread to local lymph nodes. In contrast to ductal carcinoma, lymph node involvement has not been reported in the largest series of adenoid cystic carcinoma, a much more common lacrimal gland malignancy. This case highlights the need for possible lymph node surveillance in patients with lacrimal gland ductal carcinoma.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malignant neoplasms involving the ductal systems of any of a number of organs, such as the MAMMARY GLANDS, the PANCREAS, the PROSTATE, or the LACRIMAL GLAND.

An invasive (infiltrating) CARCINOMA of the mammary ductal system (MAMMARY GLANDS) in the human BREAST.

A sebaceous gland that, in some animals, acts as an accessory to the lacrimal gland. The harderian gland excretes fluid that facilitates movement of the third eyelid.

Neoplasms, usually carcinoma, located within the center of an organ or within small lobes, and in the case of the breast, intraductally. The emphasis of the name is on the location of the neoplastic tissue rather than on its histological type. Most cancers of this type are located in the breast.

A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE
