Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a slow-growing, locally invasive epithelial tumor that is commonly observed in the head and neck. It arises from the minor and major salivary glands. It may metastasize to the intracranial area through the tissue planes along the vascular and neural structures or by way of skull base destruction. In this study, we present two cases of intracranial ACC.
