A 19-year-old-girl presented to us with a lump in the right breast. The FNAC of the lump was reported as a benign disorder. Wide local excision was performed and histopathological examination of the specimen revealed an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the breast. Subsequently, she underwent axillary nodal dissection which was found to be free of metastases. As adenoid cystic carcinoma breast has a favourable prognosis compared to other histological types, the specific characteristics and diagnostic criteria are to be adhered to, for early and accurate detection and subsequent management.
