While squamous cell carcinoma is certainly the most common malignant oral cavity neoplasm, one must always be cognizant of a variety of less Common pathologies, including minor salivary gland tumours. Salivary gland tumours of the tongue are rare. The most common type is low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma, followed by adenoid cystic carcinoma. Papillary cystadenocarcinoma of the tongue is an extremely rare malignant neoplasm. We report here a case of papillary cystadenocarcinoma in a 60-year-old lady who presented with a large pedunculated mass with localization limited to the base of the tongue. This case was also unusual because the tumour had not metastasized. The patient was treated with surgery and radiotherapy.
