Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare epithelial malignancy, which tends to grow slowly. ACC is an intractable neoplasm due to its ability to invade perineural spaces. Local recurrence after excision is not unusual. ACC most commonly arises in the lacrimal gland. Very rarely, ACC originates from accessory lacrimal gland tissue. Here, we present a patient with a large ACC of the central upper eyelid, which had been misdiagnosed and treated as a chalazion without histological examination. Its origin most likely is an accessory lacrimal gland.
