Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is an indolent, slow-growing malignant tumor which occurs frequently in hard palate associated with minor salivary glands. It is an aggressive neoplasm characterized by early neural invasion and a high incidence of multiple recurrences and distant metastases, which may develop years after the initial resection. Surgery followed by radiotherapy seems to be the best treatment. ACC patients have a limited prognosis, even after radical surgery and radiotherapy. The present article describes two cases involving adenoid cystic carcinoma of the maxilla with different treatment modalities.
