Acinic cell carcinoma is a low to intermediate grade, malignant epithelial neoplasm of salivary glands characteristically demonstrating serous acinar cell differentiation. A proportion of neoplastic cells depict cytoplasmic zymogen granules.

Acinic cell carcinoma exhibits favourable prognostic outcomes with minimal localized tumour reoccurrence, distant metastasis or metamorphosis into high grade neoplasms.

Acinic cell carcinoma preponderantly incriminates Caucasian population. Median age of disease occurrence is 52 years although no age of tumour emergence is exempt and children or elderly adults are commonly implicated. A mild female predominance is observed with female to male proportion of 1.6:1 [1,2].
