COCA-GRANADO, Rafael Michel; JIMENEZ-RODRIGUEZ, Yuniesky; BERMUDEZ-SANCHEZ, Lianet  and  DEVORA-PESTANO, Erick. Giant mucinous adenocarcinoma of the submandibular gland. Report on an extremely rare case. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2023, vol.45, n.1, pp.37-40.  Epub June 26, 2023. ISSN 2173-9161.

Mucinous Adenocarcinoma is a rare pathological entity within neoplasms that affect the salivary glands. The case of an 89-year-old female patient with a history of increased volume in the neck is presented. Physical examination revealed a tumor that covered the entire right cervical region and extended from the submandibular region to the ipsilateral clavipectoral region. The histopathological study confirmed a low grade Mucinous Adenocarcinoma. A neck dissection extended to the skin was performed and then the area was reconstructed with a myocutaneous flap from the pectoralis major muscle due to the defect generated by the removal of the large tumor volume.

In conclusion, an extremely rare giant-sized mucinous adenocarcinoma of the submandibular gland is presented.

Keywords : Neoplasia; mucinous adenocarcinoma; submandibular gland.
