Very uncommonly, one encounters adenocarcinomas that cannot be better classified as salivary gland-type neoplasia. This manuscript reviews these tumors, including sinonasal intestinal-type adenocarcinomas, sinonasal low-grade and high-grade nonintestinal adenocarcinomas and nasopharyngeal papillary adenocarcinomas. Clinical, histologic, and immunohistochemical features and differential diagnoses are discussed. *Department of Pathology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA †Cleveland Clinic Florida, Department of Lab Medicine and Pathology, Weston, FL Reprints: Diane L.
