Accessory parotid gland (APG) is seen in around 21%-56% of individuals. Tumors of accessory parotid are uncommon with an incidence rate of 1%-8% of all parotid tumors. Ductal carcinoma of APG is rare, so no reported incidence was seen in the literature. However, salivary gland ductal carcinoma is reported to be 1% of all salivary gland neoplasms. We report here a case of salivary duct carcinoma of APG. Clinical presentation, investigation, and management are discussed.
