The role of metastasectomy for recurrent disease in patients with adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is not defined clearly yet. A 52-year-old woman found two hepatic metastatic nodules 3 years after the completion of treatment for primary ACC of the trachea. After confirming the absence of other lesions, metastasectomy was performed on the two metastatic nodules. Regular follow-up for more than 24 months showed no evidence of recurrent disease after the hepatic metastasectomy. Therefore, we suggest metastasectomy as an option for certain cases of metastatic ACC.
