The incidence of salivary carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma: A SEER database review and review of the literature

Carl Rebhun, Richard O. Wein


Our review included 988 cases of carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA) in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database from 1973-2011 and includes the parotid, submandibular gland, sublingual gland, oral cavity and pharynx. The most common location for CXPA was the parotid gland with a decrease in the reported overall incidence rate noted since 1973. A racial predilection was noted (Black greater than White) and a higher incidence was noted in males. Grade III CXPA had the worst 5- and 10-year disease specific survival. The overall average incidence rate of CXPA for 1973-2011 was 0.68 persons per million. The overall 5- and 10-year survival for CXPA was 63.2% and 44.6%, respectively.
