Rights and Permissions

Adenoid cystic carcinomas are rare epithelial malignancies of salivary glands that show slow growth and local invasion with recurrences seen many years after diagnosis. Upto 50% of tumors occur in intraoral minor salivary glands usually in the hard palate. Tumors on the alveolar mucosa are extremely rare. We present a case of adenoid cystic carcinoma on the right alveolar mucosa in a 35 year old female. The case is been presented for its rarity.
