Figure 1: Photomicrographs of a case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma showing × 10 (a and b) and × 20 (c) MGG-stained smears with numerous intermediate cells, scattered mucinous cells, and epidermoid cells in a mucinous background. Lower panel (d and e) shows a case of mucoepidermoid carcinoma, diagnosed as acinic cell carcinoma, with acinar-like clusters of cells with abundant finely vacuolated cytoplasm; nuclei exhibit mild-to-moderate pleomorphism; (f) shows histopathology of the case. Note multiple variably sized cystic spaces
