Polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) is a rare malignant neoplasm of the minor salivary glands occurring in the fifth and sixth decade with a 2:1 female predominance. The nasal cavity is involved in less than 1% of cases. The incidence of clinically recognisable pituitary adenoma is 15 cases/million/year. The prevalence of non-functioning pituitary adenoma (NFPA) is estimated to be 70-90 cases/million. Both types of adenoma represent 20-45% of pituitary tumours.

Abstract

Polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) is a rare malignant neoplasm of the minor salivary glands occurring in the fifth and sixth decade with a 2:1 female predominance. The nasal cavity is involved in less than 1% of cases. The incidence of clinically recognisable pituitary adenoma is 15 cases/million/year. The prevalence of non-functioning pituitary adenoma (NFPA) is estimated to be 70-90 cases/million. Both types of adenoma represent 20-45% of pituitary tumours.
