ABSTRACT
In the head-neck region, experiencing infectious, inflammatory, and malignant masses is a common fact. However, some pathologies are rarely seen in the head and neck area, and one of them is malakoplakia. Malakoplakia is generally a slow-growing benign tumor in the urogenital region. Diagnosis is made microscopically with the appearance of Michaelis-Guttman bodies. This case report presents a 32-year-old patient with a history of early-stage tongue squamous cell cancer. In the routine follow-up of the patient, a mass with similar features to malignancy and a definitive pathological diagnosis of malakoplakia was detected. In this case report, the characteristics of the patient and the mass are discussed comprehensively.
ÖZET
Baş boyun bölgesinde enfeksiyöz, inflamatuar ve malign kitleler sıklıkla görülmektedir. Ancak bazı patolojiler baş boyun bölgesinde çok nadir görülür. Malakoplaki, genellikle ürogenital bölgede yavaş büyüyen iyi huylu bir tümördür. Michaelis-Guttman cisimlerinin görünümü ile mikroskobik olarak tanı konur. Bu vakada, erken evre dil skuamöz hücreli kanser öyküsü olan 32 yaşındaki bir hasta sunulmaktadır. Hastanın rutin takiplerinde malignite ile benzer özellikler gösteren, kesin patolojik tanısı malakoplaki olan bir kitle saptanmıştır. Bu olgu sunumunda hastanın ve kitlenin özellikleri tartışılmıştır.
