Four new cases of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the cervix are reported and analyzed together with the 6 acceptable previously reported cases. Available data indicate that a typical patient is likely to be an elderly multigravid Negro woman. The prognosis associated with this lesion is apparently poor. Only one patient is known to have survived 3 years without recurrence. When cribriform areas are not present in a biopsy, the diagnosis may readily be missed.
