sellar adenomyoepithelioma

Thursday 25 November 2010

Small nests of an ectopic salivary gland tissue are clinically insignificant and they are an incidental finding at microscopic examination in various organs at autopsy.

Intracranially, they are suggested to be the origin of extremely rare sellar tumors that bear a marked resemblance to tumors of the salivary gland.
