Myoepithelial carcinoma of salivary gland emerges as a malignant neoplasm singularly constituted of myoepithelial cells which demonstrates an infiltrative pattern of tumour evolution. Myoepithelial carcinoma of salivary gland may arise de novo or as myoepithelial carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma. PLAG1 genetic fusion is encountered in >50% neoplasms. The alterative terminology of malignant myoepithelioma is not recommended. Currently, an acceptable, well defined tumour grading system is absent. Myoepithelial carcinoma configures around 4% of salivary gland neoplasms. Nevertheless, tumour frequency may be underrated as myoepithelial carcinoma can be underdiagnosed. Myoepithelial carcinoma may incriminate paediatric subjects.
