• An unusual case of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lacrimal gland occurred in an 11-year-old child. Clinical, echographic, and histopathologic characteristics, as well as the management of this usually fatal disease, are discussed. The subtle signs and symptoms of this tumor were noted at the age of 9 years. A review of the literature reveals this to be the youngest patient in whom this tumor has been reported.
