Advanced adenoid cystic carcinoma of the skull base - The role of surgery.

Summary of "Advanced adenoid cystic carcinoma of the skull base - The role of surgery."

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a salivary gland malignancy with a propensity for perineural spread and diffuse soft tissue infiltration. In the head and neck this unique biological behaviour can result in skull base involvement. A lack of consensus regarding management of ACC involving the skull base in conjunction with the technical and reconstructive challenges of oncological resection in this region has led to variation in practice between institutions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Carcinoma characterized by bands or cylinders of hyalinized or mucinous stroma separating or surrounded by nests or cords of small epithelial cells. When the cylinders occur within masses of epithelial cells, they give the tissue a perforated, sievelike, or cribriform appearance. Such tumors occur in the mammary glands, the mucous glands of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and the salivary glands. They are malignant but slow-growing, and tend to spread locally via the nerves. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Neoplasms of the base of the skull specifically, differentiated from neoplasms of unspecified sites or bones of the skull (SKULL NEOPLASMS).

The inferior region of the skull consisting of an internal (cerebral), and an external (basilar) surface.

Either of a pair of compound bones forming the lateral (left and right) surfaces and base of the skull which contains the organs of hearing. It is a large bone formed by the fusion of parts: the squamous (the flattened anterior-superior part), the tympanic (the curved anterior-inferior part), the mastoid (the irregular posterior portion), and the petrous (the part at the base of the skull).

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
