SEPULVEDA, Ilson; DELGADO, Carolina; FLORES, Paulo  and  SALVATORI, Ornella. Sinonasal Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma: Clinical Case Report and Literature Review. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.3, pp.296-301. ISSN 0718-381X.

We present the case of a patient, a 59 year-old man, with Sinonasal Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. Magnetic resonance exam revealed invasion of the right orbit and brain at the level of the anterior cranial fossa floor. Due to the large volume, we decided to perform radio-chemotherapy treatment to diminish the size of the lesion. On conclusion of the first stage of treatment, reduction in tumor size was confirmed by computerized tomography exam and we decided to perform surgical resection with right ocular globe preservation. At present the patient is under periodic control and without major complications.

Keywords : adenoid; cystic; carcinoma; X-ray; computer tomography; magnetic resonance.
