Abstract: Recent advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of salivary gland neoplasms have yielded diagnostic targets and potential therapeutic targets that have started to change our approach and choice of treatment strategies. Currently, these options are mainly investigated in recurrent and metastatic salivary gland cancer (SGC). Although the results of both cytotoxic and targeted molecular biological systemic therapy for locoregional recurrence and distant spread of SGC remain largely unpredictable, targeted therapy can be the treatment of choice in selected cases today. Molecular analysis is required as part of the diagnostic workup to help select patients with recurrent and metastatic SGC who may benefit from targeted or standard treatment regimens.
