Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) accounts for approximately 10% of all salivary gland tumors. It is the most common malignant tumor of submandibular and minor salivary glands. The most common location is the palate, generally in the area of the greater foramen. ACC is generally characterized by a slow growth rate, & it is often present for several years before the patient seeks treatment (Jindal and Joshi, 2007). A 28 year old man reported with a swelling on the left side of palate since one and a half years which was diagnosed histopathologically as ACC. A detailed description of the case along with review of literature is presented here with an aim to focus on the importance of detailed or advanced investigations as in the present case.
