Basal cell adenocarcinoma is a well-recognized salivary gland adenoma, but in recent years there have been occasional reports of malignant basal cell tumors of major salivary glands. We here present a case report of one such basal cell adenocarcinoma arising in the submandibular salivary gland and discuss the differentiation from a basal cell adenoma. The relevant literature is discussed.
