Salivary gland neoplasms of the head and neck consist of 1-5% of the total malignancies. Adenoid cystic carcinoma (AdCC) is the second most common malignancy of the salivary gland. It is considered as an intermediate grade of salivary gland neoplasms. Here we report a case of AdCC involving the left hard palate, which was initially diagnosed as periapical granuloma. We have also reviewed different treatment options available for AdCC, and prognostic factors as well.
