Mammary analogue secretory carcinoma of salivary gland (MASC) is a recently described tumor, with small number of published cases. Less than three hundred cases have been reported in the literature and only very few of them of these cases have been reported in minor salivary glands. We present a case of a 71-years old male who was diagnosed with MASC tumor presenting in a minor salivary gland and briefly review of literature. My provisional diagnosis after careful histopathological examination of the tumor sections was either Acinic cell carcinoma or mammary analogue of secretory carcinoma of salivary gland. The final diagnosis of MASC was considered after immunohistochemical staining of tumor section with DOG-1 and mammaglobin. The gold standard for MASC diagnosis is cytogenetics, with the majority having a translocation t (12;15)(p133;q25). Although the tumor may present with different histological grading, the treatment plan could be modified in some selected cases according to the grade of the tumor.
