Abstract

Carcinosarcoma of the salivary gland is a rare lesion, estimated at 0.2% of malignant salivary gland tumors [1, 2]. The present article describes a case occurring in a 54-year-old man with a submandibular mass in the right neck. Histologically, this lesion was a carcinosarcoma which involves the submandibular and the sublingual glands. Its stromal component was a chondrosarcoma and the epithelial one was an undifferentiated carcinoma in the whole tumor, with areas of adenoid cystic carcinoma in the sublingual gland. To our knowledge, we have not found any previously reported carcinosarcoma involving the sublingual gland.
