Abstract

The main aim of this article is to discuss and summarize the research advancements and the treatment methods for sweat gland carcinoma (SGC) based on 2 cases of SGC in our hospital and the related literature. This article presents 2 patients with SGC who were treated in the China Medical University, Liaoning Provincial Key Laboratory of Oral Diseases from 2007 to 2019. We analyzed the clinical features, therapies, and prognosis of the patients and searched for related literatures. Two patients underwent extended resection for local lesions with no adjuvant radiotherapy. Neither local recurrence nor distant metastasis was detected during follow-up. Reviewing previous literature, the treatment of SGC includes surgical resection, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. We have not found an effective treatment. The prognosis of SGC occurred in head and neck is relatively good compared with another primary-site location, primary surgical excision with safe resection margins and neck dissection is recommended.
