Basal cell adenocarcinoma of the submandibular gland is an extremely rare carcinoma of the salivary gland that originates from the basal cells of the submandibular gland. Due to its rarity, there are relatively few case reports and literature on this cancer. After comprehensive clinical, imaging, and pathologic analyses, we confirmed the patient’s diagnosis and documented the consultation in detail. The purpose of this article is to report the case of a patient with basal cell adenocarcinoma of the submandibular gland and to perform a review of the relevant literature to improve the understanding of this rare disease.
