Ceruminous adenocarcinoma is a commonly discerned entity, in contrast to benign neoplasms of the ceruminous gland. Malignant neoplasms of the ceruminous gland are designated as “ceruminous adenocarcinoma” by the world health organization (WHO). In descending order of frequency, ceruminous adenocarcinoma is categorized into adenoid cystic carcinoma, ceruminous adenocarcinoma- not otherwise specified (NOS) and mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
