Abstract

Oncocytic carcinoma is a rare proliferation of cytomorphologically malignant oncocytes mainly found in the glandular tissue. Only a few cases of oncocytic carcinoma of the salivary gland origin have been reported in english journals. We report a case of oncocytic carcinoma arising in the right parotid gland of a 67-year-old man. He was referred to our centre for cervical lymph nodes metastasis and local recurrence even after multiple surgeries over the right parotid gland and underwent radiotherapy twice. Our review of the literature suggests that patient with such tumour who undergoes aggressive surgery serve a better prognosis than conservative management and radiotherapy.
