Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland: A Case Report of Rare Entity

Adenoid cystic carcinomas have specific pathologic features that correlate with prognosis. In general, adenoid cystic carcinomas are aggressive tumours with poor prognosis. Treatment most commonly includes surgery with or without radiation and chemotherapy. We describe a patient who presented with right periorbital swelling and CT Face contrast showing well defined soft tissue dense heterogeneously enhancing mass lesion seen along medial wall of right orbital region. The tumour was excised, and pathologic analysis showed an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lacrimal gland. We review the clinical, radiographic, and pathologic features of these rare malignant tumours as well as treatment options.
