ABSTRACT
The Primary central salivary gland neoplasms of the mandible are infrequent. Their clinical and radiographic features may be similar to odontogenic tumors, which are otherwise common. Their accurate diagnosis becomes troublesome. Hence, diagnosis should depend on stringent diagnostic criteria. Adenoid cystic carcinoma is well known for its prolonged clinical course and its tendency for delayed onset of distant metastases. The long-term survival of these patients is therefore poor. Treatment modalities include surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The purpose of this paper is to report a case of primary central adenoid cystic carcinoma of mandible with an atypical presentation.

Figure 1: Panoramic radiograph showing lytic lesion with irregular margins involving complete body and ramus of the mandible

Mentions: A 64-year-old male patient reported to the outpatient department with the chief complaint of pain in the lower jaw. There was history of pain since five months, which was resistant to analgesics. Clinical examination revealed a slight, diffuse swelling throughout the buccal aspect of mandible. Gingiva appeared inflamed due to chronic generalized periodontitis with no other evident change in the mucosa. Submandibular lymph nodes were palpable but non-tender. Panoramic radiograph [Figure 1] and intraoral periapical radiographs showed an irregular lytic lesion involving almost whole of the mandible. All teeth were vital.
