Comments: Cell Types: Acinic cell carcinomas are composed of an admixture of different cell types, including a) acinar cells which are large polygonal cells with abundant basophilic granular cytoplasm (due to zymogen-like granules) and eccentrically placed small hyperchromatic nuclei; b) clear or vacuolated cells; c) intercalated duct-like cells which are cuboidal or columnar cells with.

Acinic Cell Carcinoma •Malignant epithelial neoplasm characterized by cytologic differentiation toward serous acinar cells (distinctive zymogen type secretory granules) •Second most common epithelial malignancy of the salivary gland (about half as frequent as mucoepidermoid carcinoma) •80% arise in the parotid glan Introduction. Acinic cell carcinoma (AcCC) is the second most common malignant neoplasm of the salivary glands, is located most commonly in the parotid gland, and derives from the acinar epithelium. 1 The diagnosis of AcCC by fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is often challenging. First, AcCC may appear similar to other benign and malignant neoplasms with oncocytic, vacuolated, or clear cell. The study cohort was composed of 10 cases of low-grade acinic cell carcinoma, 1 case of dedifferentiated high-grade ACC-SG, 3 cases of non-neoplastic salivary gland processes (chronic sialadenitis), 39 cases of benign salivary gland neoplasms, and 17 cases of malignant salivary gland neoplasms Acinar cells: large cells with serous or mucinous cytoplasmic content and small nuclei. Zymogen granules are often seen in the cytoplasm. It is very important to find ductal cells related to the acinic ones because if the former are missing we have to think of a well differentiated acinic cell carcinoma

Carcinomas with oncocytic / oncocytoid cells or prominent lymphocytic infiltrates falsely interpreted as Warthin tumor or oncocytoma, ex: Warthin-like variant of mucoepidermoid carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma with lymphoid cuffing, acinic cell carcinoma with / without lymphoid infiltrates, secretory carcinoma → SUMP with oncocytic. Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) is a low-grade malignant salivary neoplasm that constitutes approximately 17% of primary salivary gland malignancies. In the head and neck region, the parotid gland is the predominant site of origin and women are usually more frequently diagnosed than men Acinar cell carcinoma. It is a rare, aggressive malignancy, usually arising in adults, but it has been reported in children and adolescents as well. Cytologic diagnostic features.

Acinic Cell Carcinoma is a low-grade neoplasm occurs on the epithelial cell lining of the salivary gland. A gradual mass progression of the terminal end of the parotid gland usually affected. Almost 17 percent of the primary salivary gland carcinoma is related to the Acinic Cell Carcinoma The oncocytic or oncocytoid aspirate has a broad differential diagnosis, but main considerations include oncocytoma, oncocytic cystadenoma, Warthin tumor, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, acinic cell carcinoma, mammary analogue secretory carcinoma, and salivary duct carcinoma ().Oncocytoma, oncocytic cystadenoma, and Warthin tumor have a similar cytomorphologic appearance in that aspirates contain. Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) of the salivary glands is a low grade malignancy which can present with late recurrences and distant metastasis. Being relatively resistant to chemotherapy, managing metastatic ACC is a clinical challenge, especially considering the long duration of survival of these patients Primary pulmonary acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) is rare. The clinicopathological features are not identical to that of classic ACC that leads to misdiagnosis. In this article, we summarized the clinicopathological features of 25 such cases, including 6 cases in this series and additional 19 cases in the literature
Social Media: The overall diagnostic accuracy was 76.6% for mucoepidermoid carcinoma, 71.8% for acinic cell carcinoma and 88.9% for adenoid cystic carcinoma according to the Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytology (MSRSGC) in an international multi-institutional study .

Usually, acinic cell carcinoma is prone to be underdiagnosed because of the cytological similarity of the tumor cells to normal acinar cells, however rarely, a predominant papillary architecture on cytology may cause confusion with adenocarcinomas. We present a case of a 45-year-old male with a painful swelling of the right parotid region Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNA) can pose diagnostic difficulties due to the overlapping cytological features with acinic cell carcinoma (AciCC), mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC), oncocytic salivary neoplasms, low-grade cystadenocarcinoma, and pleomorphic adenoma (PA) Objectives: Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) accounts for 12-17% of primary salivary gland carcinomas and 3.4% of all salivary gland neoplasms. ACC‐papillary cystic variant (PCV) is a distinct subtype with clear‐cut and well‐defined morphological features as revealed in tissue sections, but it is more difficult to diagnose accurately on fine needle aspiration (FNA)

Acinic cell carcinoma is a rare breast tumour belonging to salivary gland-like tumours of the breast. They are triple-negative breast cancers even if their biological behaviour seems to be more favourable. Herein we present an acinic cell carcinoma arising on a background of typical and atypical microglandular adenosis in a 58-year-old woman, along with a review of the literature This is particularly valid when dealing with rare tumor types, such as the papillary-cystic variant of acinic-cell carcinoma (ACC-PCV), resulting in a high rate of false-negative cytologic diagnoses. Seven cases of ACC-PCV diagnosed on tissue resection with a prior FNA performed in cytology were studied

Abstract: Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) is a rarely seen, slowly growing, low-grade malignant neoplasia of the salivary gland. ACC is most frequently detected in the parotid gland, rarely it is localized in a minor salivary gland. Rarely psammoma bodies are seen in neoplasic, and nonneoplasic lesions of the salivary gland Eneroth CM, Jakobsson P, Zajicek J. Aspiration biopsy of salivary gland tumors. V.

Acinic cell carcinoma (ACC) is a rare, slow-growing, low-grade salivary gland cancer. Most ACC occur in the parotid gland, representing between 2 and3% of all epithelial parotid neoplasms (1-3). The reported 10-year survival rate is approximately 70% (4-5). However, ACC has a tendency to develop local recurrence in 40 to 50% of the patients. An Acinic Cell Carcinoma (ACC) of Salivary Gland is a type of malignant epithelial tumor affecting either the major or minor salivary glands. It is observed in a wide age category of both children and adults. The cause of formation of this salivary gland malignancy is generally unknown, but may be due to genetic factors
