Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is the second most common malignant tumor affecting both major and minor salivary glands. Clinically, it is a slowly growing tumor with high propensity for local invasion, recurrence and distant metastasis. It is predominantly seen in the fifth and sixth decades of life. Here, we report a rare case of ACC affecting the right maxilla of a 12-year-old girl.
