It was formerly called “cylindroma” due to its histological appearance but was subsequently termed AdCC by Spies in 1930.Case series report this tumor to be the 2nd most common malignant salivary gland tumor after mucoepidermoid carcinoma(MEC) although there are reports which say it is the 5th most common malignant tumor.
