The purpose of this study was to determine the oestrogen and progesterone receptor status of a selection of salivary tumours. Using immunohistochemistry, we detected nine oestrogen receptor and six progesterone receptor positive tumours from a sample of 36. One acinic cell carcinoma and two mucoepidermoid carcinomas demonstrated positivity for both receptors. We suggest that there may be role for oestrogen manipulation in the management of some salivary tumours.
