Objectives: Primary malignant tumors in the salivary glands are relatively rare. Because of the rarity and the different histopathologic patterns, it is difficult to establish a uniform treatment strategy. The prime treatment of salivary gland malignancy is the surgery, but the role of radiotherapy has been under debate. Radiation therapy combined with conservative surgical procedures may be as successful and perhaps more rational treatment than radical surgery alone. The aim of this study is to evaluate clinical pattern, incidence, treatment modality and outcome of the salivary gland maligancy. Materials and Methods: The medical records of 32 patients with malignant neoplasm of salivary gland who treated at the Keimyung university Dongsan hospital were analyzed retrospectively. Results: The overall 5 year survival rate was 77.9% stage I : 100%, stage II : 75%, stage III : 66.7%, stage IV : 55.6%). The 5 year survival rate according to tumor grade was 100% in low grade malignancy, 71.8% in high grade malignancy. The 5 year survival rate according to treatment modalities was as follows: Surgery only group was 83.3%, combined treatment group with surgery and posoperative radiation was 74.6%. Conclusion: The factors affecting prognosis is variable, but the stage at the time of diagnosis, site of lesion, tumor grade, histologic subtype were important factors. Surgery was the prime treatment tool and postoperative radiotherapy was also imperative in higher stage patient, high grade tumor, or patients with positive surgical margin.
