Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare, slow-growing adnexal neoplasm characterized by an indolent but progressive course. AAC arises in the dermis, most frequently of the scalp, followed by chest and abdomen, and may extend into the subcutaneous fat. The tumour typically presents as a firm, poorly circumscribed nodule measuring between 0.5 and 8 cm (average 3.2 cm). It is composed of infiltrative nests and cords of basaloid cells arranged in glandular, cystic, cribriform and tubular patterns. The cystic spaces are often filled with mucin. Perineural involvement, a characteristic feature of ACC in other organs, is not as frequently observed in the skin.
Primary cutaneous ACC affects middle-aged and elderly patients (mean age: 58 years) and shows a predilection for women. The tumour recurs in up to 70% of cases; wide surgical excision is therefore recommended

Adenoid cystic carcinoma is characterized by cystic spaces filled with hyaline material or mucin and palisaded by epithelial cells. The neoplastic cells show nuclear pleomorphism and a high mitotic rate. Necrosis is common.
Cervical adenoid cystic carcinoma is rare. It predominantly affects women >60 years of age. Patients typically present with postmenopausal bleeding. Local recurrences as well as distant metastases are frequent. The prognosis is unfavourable

Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a slowly growing, locally very aggressive tumour. It is typically composed of uniform malignant epithelial cells arranged in nests and columns around glandlike spaces. The growth pattern is cribriform. The stroma is hyaline and may form cylinders between rows of tumour cells.
In the vulva, primary adenoid cystic carcinoma is very rare. It can arise at the site of the Bartholin gland, resulting in an enlargement of the Bartholin gland area that may resemble a Bartholin duct cyst. Patients are predominantly older women >50 years of age. Approximately 20% of patients have ipsilateral inguinofemoral lymph node metastases at presentation. The tumour has a high tendency to recur
