INTRODUCTION: Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is a malignant epithelial neoplasm that predominantly arises from salivary glands. Rarely, primary ACC can arise from the central airways such as the trachea and main bronchus. Pulmonary ACC is more aggressive, presents at higher clinical stage and is often difficult to resect due to its central location.
