Abstract

Salivary duct carcinoma is an aggressive malignancy which phenotypically resembles high-grade breast ductal carcinoma, it has a high mortality rate and parotid gland is the most common location. Here, we report a case of an extensive salivary gland malignancy involving the left middle third of face in a 65-year-old male patient. Computed tomography confirmed a large and extensive heterogenous radiopacity in the left maxillary sinus region which revealed calcification causing destruction of the posterolateral and medial wall of the left maxillary sinus and also causing severe destruction of the left lateral wall of the nose and the pterygoid plates.

Keywords: Ductal carcinoma, Malignancy, Recurrence.
