Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare variant of adenocarcinoma that usually occurs in the major salivary gland. In breast, adenoid cystic carcinoma is a very rare carcinoma accounting for less than 1% of the all breast carcinoma. It has an excellent prognosis with the lower incidence of distant metastasis and axillary lymph node involvement, and a benign looking or low suspicious findings on imaging. We will report the radiologic and pathologic finding of the adenoid cystic carcinoma that is incidentally detected in the right breast of asymptomatic 47-year-old woman, who had taken annual screening mammogram and ultrasonogram.
