ABSTRACT


Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is primarily found in the salivary glands and rarely at other organs but never reported as liver primary. This is a very rare case of primary ACC of the liver which was not resectable and managed with chemotherapy and targeted therapy. The patient progressed on imatinib (c-kit positive) while responded to chemotherapy and gefitinib (epidermal growth factor receptor mutation absent).
