Primary mucinous eccrine carcinoma of the buccal space: A case report and review of the literature


Mucinous eccrine carcinoma is a rare tumor most commonly seen in the head and neck region. This report describes an 84-year-old who presented with a blue mass on the left cheek which was surgically removed and determined to be a mucinous eccrine carcinoma. Due to the low frequency of occurrence of this tumor, review of its etiology, histopathology, and treatment strategies is beneficial to all clinicians who may encounter similar appearing masses.
