Abstract

Introducton: Tumours of the salivary glands are infrequent, yet they represent an extensive variety of both benign and malignat tumours.

 

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate clinicopathological data to determine the distribution of epithelial salivary gland tumours(SGT) in patients who were diagnosed at OMFS unit , TH-Karapitiya, Sri Lanka from 2004 to 2014.

 

Material and methods: Total of 77 SGT were diagnosed in the period of 11 years were reviewed using biopsy reports.

 

Results: Out of 77 epithelial SGTs 35 were benign , 42 were malignat. Indicating a benign to malignat ratio of 1: 1.2. Malignat tumours were more common in minor salivary glands indicating a percentage of 59.52% of total malignat tumours.When considering minor SGT, 73.52% were malignat.

 

Conclusion: There was a higher occurrence of malignat tumours in minor salivary glands in this study.
