Abstract Ten adenoid cystic carcinomas were examined for elastic tissues. The principal stain used was a Verhoeff's hematoxylin, alcian blue, chlorantine fast red sequence. Eight of the lesions contained detectable amounts of elastic tissue and, of these, six contained relatively dense and extensive deposits. The elastic tissue occurs principally in linear and radial arrangements immediately adjacent to the islands of neoplastic cells. Small quantities were seen in spheres within the neoplastic islands. The background in which the elastic tissue formed was alcian blue positive and chlorantine fast red negative. Both epithelial and myoepithelial cells are present in these neoplasms, and the evidence supports the view that one or both of these is directly involved in the production of elastic tissues in adenoid cystic carcinomas. It would be reasonable to suspect that the myoepithelial cells may have this property, but the present study neither confirms nor denies this hypothesis.
