Salivary duct carcinoma (SDC) is an uncommon aggressive malignancy seen predominantly in the parotid gland. Intra oral cases of SDC arising from minor salivary glands are rare and only a few have been reported in literature. This malignancy is well known for its cestructive behaviour, metastasis to distant sites and high mortality rate. In this article, we present a case of salivary duct carcinoma of palate of a 44-year-old male patient.
