Primary Cutaneous Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (PCACC) is a rare form of cutaneous carcinoma. It closely resembles adenoid cystic carcinoma of salivary glands. The lesion tends to infiltrate and recur locally but rarely metastasizes to distant organs and lymph nodes. We present here a case of a31-year-old male with complaints of swellings in the chest wall and scalp, progressively increasing in size over a period of 10 years. Clinical diagnosis of sebaceous cysts of scalp and chest wall was made. Histopathology revealed PCACC of the chest wall and dermoid cyst of the scalp.
