Background: Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) comprises approximately 10% of all salivary gland tumors. It is the most common malignant tumor of sub-mandibular salivary gland and also of minor salivary glands. It is most commonly found in the area of the greater palatine foramen of the palate. One of the features of ACC is its slow growth rate & thus it is often present in the patient's mouth for several years before manifesting with symptoms. A detailed description of a case of ACC along with review of literature is presented here with emphasis to focus on the importance of detailed investigations, histo-pathological evaluation and post-operative rehabilitation.
