Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the lung is a relatively rare, slow growing lung neoplasm. Metastases outside the lung are uncommon. Herein, we have reported the case of a patient who presented with a large mass in the right lower lobe of her lung. Bronchial biopsy revealed features suggestive of adenoid cystic carcinoma of thelung with a predominant cribriform architecture. CT abdomen showed features of bilateral renal and liver metastases, but no adrenal metastases.
