Salivary gland tumors comprise a heterogeneous group of lesions, many of which can pose significant diagnostic challenges for the practicing surgical pathologist. This webcast will discuss the combined use of histomorphology and ancillary studies (immunohistochemistry and molecular analysis) in the diagnosis of key salivary gland tumors including the evaluation of small biopsies and FNA material. The session will also include the 2017 WHO classification of salivary gland tumors and current approaches to clinical management.
