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: The patient was then referred for treatment in Cuiabá, the state capital, where additional tests were conducted. The panoramic radiograph (Figure 3) and computed tomography (CT) (Figures 4 and 5) revealed invasion of the maxillary bone, maxillary sinus, ethmoid bone, nasal cavity, frontal sinus, and central nervous system, frontal lobe of the cerebrum. CT of the sinuses revealed lesion in the upper part of the mouth on the right side with involvement of the gingiva, maxillary sinus, and right nasal fossa with posterior extension to the pharynx, involving the trigone retromaxillary, pterygoid muscle, and pterygopalatine fossa. Magnetic resonance imaging of the face showed anomalous tissue compromising the right side of the face, suggesting expansive and infiltrative lesion predominantly solid with signs of small cystic component in the superior and medial portion of indeterminate lineage. Video-laryngoscopy showed compatibility with tumor on the hard palate. Chest radiography showed up normal. Final TNM classification was T4N0M0.
