Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lacrimal gland (ACC) is a rare malignant orbital tumour with a poor overall prognosis. Current therapeutic approaches like radical and local surgery, adjuvant radiation and neoadjuvant intra-arterial chemotherapy are controversial. We present three cases of patients with ACC with different therapy concepts and discuss these with current recommendations from the literature. Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.
