Partial remission of advanced adenoid cystic carcinoma obtained with adriamycin: a case report with a review of the literature.


Adenoid cystic carcinoma is relatively uncommon and often originates from the salivary glands. Although distant metastases develop rather frequently no satisfactory form of therapy has been reported. We achieved a partial remission with adriamycin in a patient with advanced metastases of adenoid cystic carcinoma. This case is described, and a short review of the literature, including papers on the treatment of advanced disease, is also given.
