Particular attention will be paid to the diagnostic criteria with systematic analysis of differential diagnoses. Value and limitations of immunohistochemistry and molecular-genetic tools will be demonstrated and critically discussed. A comprehensive review and update of histopathology with discussion of clinical significance of benign and malignant tumors of the salivary glands will be provided. In addition, several lectures will give  an overview on classification and diagnostic issues, complementing the case discussions.
