Abstract

Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is an unusual slow growing, aggressive neoplasm of salivary gland, constituting less than 1% of all head and neck malignancies. It commonly affects adults in the fourth to sixth decades and typically involves minor salivary glands of palate followed by parotid, and submandibular glands. We present here a case of a 16-year-old female diagnosed with ACC involving the buccal mucosa and abutting the distal end of stenson’s duct along with the surgical management and follow up.
