Abstract

Adenoid cystic carcinoma is the most common type of malignancy seen in the lacrimal glands and is generally characterized by invasive malignant appearance with irregular margins and associated bone erosion or destruction. The authors report an unusual patient with a large expansile, well-circumscribed lacrimal adenoid cystic carcinoma with adjacent bone remodeling, radiologically mimicking a benign lesion.
