We report on a patient who presented to the ENT service with swelling of the right side of the parotid gland. The swelling had been present for four years. Imaging studies revealed an expansive process confined to the superficial right parotid lobule. The affected area was well delineated with irregular enhancement post intravenous contrast media administration. Surgical biopsy concluded the presence of Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. The patient was treated with adjuvant radiation therapy and follow up exams confirm there is no evidence of recurrence.
