Tracheobronchial Tumors of the Salivary Gland Type

  • Armando E. Fraire
  • David H. Dail


Tumors derived from the submucosal glands of the tracheobronchial tree are currently known as tumors of the salivary gland type. Most but not all of the tumors occurring in the major and minor salivary glands of the head and neck are known to occur in the respiratory tract. In the past, the term bronchial adenoma has been used to designate a group of slow-growing neoplasms, many of which arise from the bronchial glands of the respiratory tract. This is unfortunate since some of these so-called adenomas are in fact low-grade malignancies. Therefore, the term bronchial adenoma is to be discouraged and will not be used in this chapter.
