Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the trachea is a rare primary tracheal malignancy. Obstructive symptoms such as dyspnoea, hoarseness of voice, dysphasia are commonly seen symptoms. Combined modality treatments including surgery and radiation therapy are considered as optimal treatment for these tumours. A case of adenoid cystic carcinoma in a 35 years old male patient who was treated successfully by surgical excision and external beam radiation therapy is presented.
