Secretory carcinoma of salivary gland origin is a recently described tumor that harbors a characteristic ETV6-NTRK3 translocation that is identical to secretory carcinoma of the breast. The majority of tumors were located in the parotid gland and other major salivary glands, while the minority occurred in a minor salivary gland. We present a case of a 71-year-old female who was diagnosed with low-grade salivary gland cancer presenting in the soft palate accompanying lymph node metastasis. Peroral wide excision, selective neck dissection, reconstruction with radial forearm free flap was performed. The final pathology report indicated secretory carcinoma of the soft palate. The patient was followed-up without evidence of recurrence for one year. At present, it is difficult to accurately assess prognosis and treatment for the secretory carcinoma of the minor salivary gland origin. Continuous follow-up with various cases is needed further.
