Mucinous adenocarcinoma is rarely reported in head and neck region. In other organ, it usually occur in breast, gastrointenstinal tract and so on. The specific histologic findings of mucinous adenocarcinoma are the large amount of extracellular mucin and tumor cell nests such as floating in mucin pool. It may develop rarely in major or minor salivary gland, but only one case of mucinous adenocarcinoma originating from parotid gland was presented in south korea. We report a case of mucinous adenocarcinoma in the tongue base considered to develop from minor salivary gland with a review of literatures.
