Abstract

Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is one of the most common salivary gland malignancy. Loco regional and distant metastases are common in 40-60%, even after a short disease free interval. Most frequently, ACC metastasize to the lung, bone, liver and cerebrum with solid pattern. We present a case of bilateral lung metastases in a patient with ACC and active tuberculosis mimicking bronchoalveolar carcinoma ground glass opacities.
