Abstract

Oncocytic carcinoma is an extremely rare malignancy of salivary glands accounting for 0.5% of all epithelial salivary gland malignancies and 0.18% of all epithelial salivary gland tumors. In 1894 Hurthle, a German pathologist first described oncocytes in thyroid glands of normal canine. The term ‘Oncocyte’ was coined by Hamperl in 1931. The oncocytic carcinoma represents 5% of all oncocytic salivary gland neoplasms and less than 1% of all salivary gland tumors. This case report describes a classical case of oncocytic carcinoma in 55 year old male patient.
