Rights and Permissions

Salivary duct carcinomas (SDCs) occur almost exclusively in the major salivary glands. The parotid gland is most commonly affected. SDC of the tongue, arising from a minor salivary gland, is a rare entity. The standard treatment for SDCs is radical surgery in combination with radiotherapy. There is a paucity of cases of this entity in literature, especially affecting the tongue. Hereby, we report a case of an SDC of the anterior tongue.
