Sunita Singh, Nidhi Kaushik*, Shivani Malik and Rajeev Sen
Adenoid cystic carcinoma(ACC) of breast is a rare variant of breast carcinoma. It accounts for <1% of all breast malignancies. Despite its characteristic appearance on FNA, ACC may be misinterpreted, especially because of its low incidence in the breast. With the increasing use of FNA cytology in the preoperative evaluation of breast lesions, it is likely that increasing numbers of such cases will be identified in the future. The present study highlights cytology features in a case of mammary adenoid cystic carcinoma which is identical to its counterpart in the salivary glands.
Keywords: Breast, Adenoid cystic carcinoma, FNAC.
