Abstract

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is one of the most common malignancies of the minor salivary glands in the head and neck. We report a case of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the subglottic region presenting with hoarseness and decrease effort tolerance. Smooth, solid and lobulated mass arising from the anterior part of the subglottic region was seen on direct laryngoscopy. Computed tomography (CT) scan and histopathological examination were confirmatory. Laser excision followed by radiation resulted in apparently normal subglottic mucosa.
