Hyalinizing clear cell carcinoma (HCCC) is an uncommon malignant salivary gland tumor accounting for about 1% of all intra-oral salivary gland tumors. Microscopic diagnosis of clear cell carcinoma may be challenging because of the spectrum of features which frequently overlaps with the other salivary gland tumors that contain clear cells, and thus it may be a diagnosis of exclusion. HCCC is currently classified as a clear cell adenocarcinoma by the AFIP and as clear cell carcinoma, not otherwise specified (NOS) by the World Health Organization (WHO). Here we, report a case of HCCC in a 55 years old male with detailed histopathological, clinical and management review.
