A 40-year-old female patient reported to the department with the complaint of a single growth and pain in the upper right back tooth region for 1 year. Intraoral examination revealed a single unilateral exophytic growth seen on the right upper pterygomandibular raphe region. Extraoral examination revealed no facial asymmetry and no evidence of lymphadenopathy. Histopathological examination revealed a hyperparakeratotic stratified squamous epithelium of variable thickness with broad and flattened rete ridges. Lesional tissue showed large sheets of cells surrounded by condensed collagen component. The lesional cells were basaloid in appearance with hyperchromatic nucleus predominately arranged in a cribriform pattern along with eosinophilic material. No evidence of perineural invasion was observed in serial sections. On the basis of these findings, the diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma was established.
