Bottom Line: Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a cancer of the salivary gland that primarily affects the parotid, submandibular, and accessory salivary glands.Its growth is slow and it has infiltrative nature.A 46-year-old female patient coming from the rural area presented a lesion on the palate and reported pain in the region for three years.

ABSTRACT
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a cancer of the salivary gland that primarily affects the parotid, submandibular, and accessory salivary glands. Its growth is slow and it has infiltrative nature. A 46-year-old female patient coming from the rural area presented a lesion on the palate and reported pain in the region for three years. After incisional biopsy, and histopathological diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the cribriform type of minor salivary gland, superior hemimaxillectomy and adjuvant treatment with radiotherapy and maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation were performed.

Mentions: Histological sections revealed ectodermal tumor fragment originating from the salivary gland formed by cribriform parenchyma, forming structures resembling ducts consisting of two cell layers, the innermost layer interpreted as ducal neoplastic cell and the outermost layer is interpreted as being composed of neoplastic myoepithelial cells (Figure 2). Stroma consisting of loose fibrous connective tissue completed the histology leading to the final diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma cribriform type of minor salivary gland.
