Abstract : Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is an uncommon type of adenocarcinoma that most usually affects the head and neck involving major and minor salivary glands. In past few years, ACC has been described in a variety of organs, such as the lacrimal gland and the female reproductive system. We describe three cases of ACC that presented in unusual sites involving breast, bartholin/s glands and external auditory canal along with a brief overview of literature. The confusing characteristic features of these lesions occurring in unusual sites and their indeterminate clinical course makes it mandatory to consider them in differential diagnosis of all malignant and benign lesions occurring in these sites. Special stains and immunohistochemical features of the lesion that can help differentiate these cancers from other commonly occurring cancers in these sites have also been discussed here.
