We present the case of a 65-year-old woman with sublingual adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). Computed tomography (CT) sialography revealed an expansive process in the left sublingual gland accompanied with ipsilateral submandibular salivary duct obstruction. The head and neck tumor board recommended surgical and radiotherapy treatment. Presently, the patient is disease-free with no visible complications or signs of recurrence.
