Acinic cell carcinoma presenting in the nasal cavity is a rare entity. Here we report a case of a 65-year-old female patient who presented with a history of epistaxis and nasal obstruction. The case was diagnosed as acinic cell carcinoma. The tumor was found to be arising from the lateral wall of the right nasal cavity and it was treated by surgical excision and regular follow-up. This tumor is usually found in the major salivary glands and has a low grade behavior with the best survival rate of any salivary malignancy. We present a rare case presenting in the lateral wall of the nasal cavity. The clinical, histopathological features, and the management of this tumor is described with a review of the relevant literature.
