Following the parotid and sublingual glands, the submandibular gland is the most commonly affected site (Spiro et al., 1974). These tumors are frequently devoid of symptoms, exhibit slow growth, and are known for their characteristic infiltrative growth pattern and perineural invasion..Case Detail; This research presents a case of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in a 45-year-old female who presented with a left submandibular swelling persisting for 12 years. The diagnosis was confirmed through histopathological examination, and the study also includes a review of the distinctive clinical and histopathological characteristics found in the literature.Conclusion Salivary gland tumors can manifest in any location where salivary tissue is present. Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a rare type of salivary gland tumor known for its varied histomorphological characteristics. Achieving an early diagnosis and developing a treatment strategy requires thorough patient history assessment, clinical examination, and the incorporation of radiographic and histopathological findings(Spiro, 1986; Spiro et al., 1974).
