salivary duct carcinoma with rhabdoid features

Thursday 9 June 2016

SDCRF

SDCRF is an extremely rare subtype of SDC, and not a sarcomatoid variant of SDC.

SDCRF is histologically unique, and is positive for SDC markers but negative for vimentin, unlike rhabdoid-type carcinomas arising from other organs.

Salivary duct carcinoma with rhabdoid features can be considered as a salivary counterpart of pleomorphic lobular carcinoma of the breast.
