VAN DER WAAL, Rutger y VAN DER WAAL, Isaäc. Oral non-squamous malignant tumors: diagnosis and treatment. Med. oral patol. oral cir.bucal (Internet) [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.7, pp.486-491. ISSN 1698-6946.
Some 90% of oral cancers consist of squamous cell carcinomas that arise from the oral mucosa. The remaining 10% of malignancies consist of malignant melanomas, carcinomas of the intraoral salivary glands, sarcomas of the soft tissues and the bones, malignant odontogenic tumors, non-Hodgkins lymphomas and metastases from primary tumors located elsewhere in the body. These malignancies will be briefly reviewed and discussed. The emphasis is on diagnosis and management.
