Acinic cell carcinoma of the minor salivary glands is relatively rare. A case of acinic cell carcinoma with a microcystic pattern arising in the buccal mucosa is reported. A 55-year-old man presented with a painless swelling in the left buccal mucosa. The tumor measured 18×18mm. No swelling of the cervical lymph nodes was found. Only surgical excision was performed. Sections taken from the buccal mucosa showed proliferation of atypical cells characterized by strong immunoexpression of Lact-F. These cells were arranged in a microcystic pattern. The histopathological diagnosis was acinic cell carcinoma. Sixteen months after surgical exision, there has been no evidence of recurrence or metastasis.
