Mammary analog secretory carcinoma (MASC) is a recently identified neoplasm of the salivary glands, which harbors the distinctive ETV6-NTRK3 oncogenic fusion gene from other salivary malignant tumors. MASC shares morphologic characteristics with acinic cell carcinoma (AciCC) and mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC), and is more likely to metastasize to the regional lymph nodes. Thus differentiation among other salivary gland tumors is important. We present a rare pediatric case of parotid gland MASC in a 12-year-old girl and a review of world literature.
