NIH Rare Diseases:42 Myoepithelial carcinoma is a rare malignant tumor that usually occurs in the salivary glands but can also occur in skin and soft tissues. the name of this cancer comes from the appearance of the tumor cells under the microscope. approximately 66% of these tumors occur in the parotid gland. the average age of patients is reported to be 55 years. last updated: 8/18/2009

MalaCards: Myoepithelioma, also known as myoepithelial carcinoma, is related to adenoma and pleomorphic adenoma. An important gene associated with Myoepithelioma is ACTC1 (actin, alpha, cardiac muscle 1), and among its related pathways are Striated Muscle Contraction and Cytoskeleton remodeling Keratin filaments. The compounds estrogen and butyrate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include salivary gland, skin and breast, and related mouse phenotypes are muscle and vision/eye.

Disease Ontology:8 A carcinoma that is composed of outgrowths of myoepithelial cells from a sweat gland.

Wikipedia:63 Myoepithelioma of the head and neck, also myoepithelioma, is a salivary gland tumour of the head and... more...
