Agnogenic Myeloid Metaplasia With a Parotid Mass

Arch Otolaryngol. 1979;105(4):205-206. doi:10.1001/archotol.1979.00790160039010

• Agnogenic myeloid metaplasia, one of the entities in the myeloproliferative syndrome, usually initially appears with splenomegaly, hepatomegaly, and a normocytic, normochromic anemia. Extramedullary hematopoiesis is also a common finding, but is exceedingly rare in the major salivary glands. We report a case of extramedullary hematopoiesis in the parotid gland and discuss the differential diagnosis and characteristics of the disease.
