Adenoid cystic carcinoma of lacrimal gland is most common malignant tumor of lacrimal gland and very crucial to differentiate between adenocystic carcinoma and pleomorphic adenoma of lacrimal gland because of different outcome.
Aims and Objectives: To study the incidence, histopathological pattern, and distribution into the age, sex of Adenoid cystic carcinoma in to the lacrimal gland.
Materials and Methods: A Retrospective study of 14 cases of Adenoid cystic carcinoma in lacrimal gland during period of 10 years were studied A detailed history of patients were taken with special attention to the age, sex, macroscopic (gross examination) and microscopic features of tissue. Microscopic examination is done under standard H & E staining procedure.
Result and Conclusion: Total 57 cases of lacrimal gland tumor were studied among them 14 cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma, its most common malignant tumor of lacrimal gland. It’s most common age for presentation is 4th to 6th decade, and most common histological pattern present in mixed pattern. And its incidence are slightly more common in female. Other detail discussed in to the result and discussion section.

Keywords: Adenoid cystic carcinoma, Lacrimal gland, Histological patterns, Age, Sex.
