Introduction-Adenoid cystic carcinomas are malignant tumors that occur in both the major and the minor salivary glands. A laryngeal location is rare because of the paucity of accessary salivary glands in this area. Adenoid cystic carcinomas are rare account for less than 1% of all malignant tumors in the larynx, and only 120 cases have been reported in literature. Case presentation- We report a case of laryngeal adenoid cystic carcinoma in a 65- year-old female who presented with dyspnea, hoarseness and pain in throat. On examination growth over subglottis was present. Biopsy was taken and sends for Histopathological examination. The histopathological examination and IHC finding were suggestive of Adenoid cystic carcinoma of larynx. Discussion- Adenoid cystic carcinoma is very uncommon in larynx. These tumors have slight female predisposition and their peak incidence is in fifth and sixth decades of life. Features of diagnostic and therapeutic evaluation are described and clinical management of such cases is outlined.
