Adenoid cystic carcinoma is regarded as a rare malignant neoplasm of the salivary gland. The clinical as well as pathological features of this neoplasm include slow growth, perineural invasion and the potential for local recurrence. The total incidence rate is about 2 – 4% of head and neck tumors. It involves palate most commonly among the minor salivary glands, and parotid and submandibular salivary glands among the majors. Here, we describe two cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma involving the parotid salivary gland and the palate regions.
