Abstract


Adenoid cystic carcinoma is rare malignant neoplasm of salivary gland accounting for 1% of all malignant tumor of the oral and maxillofacial region and 6% of all salivary gland tumors. Typically it presents as slow growing painfull mass affecting predominantly women in 5th to 6th decade of life. Known for prineural invation, if not treated early it may prove fatal. Although much has been documented about the lesion since its discovery, Adenoid cystic carcinoma remains a topic of controversy regarding its origin, clinical course, treatment modality and recurrence. This case report documents yet another peculiar presentation of an aggressive Adenoid cystic carcinoma in a 30 year old woman. A detailed clinical differential diagnosis is also discussed.
