Adenoid cystic carcinoma commonly arises from the major and minor salivary glands. Primary cutaneous adenoid cystic carcinoma is extremely rare. The tumour was hard, non-tender, and fixed to the underlying stucture with visible congested veins. Histopathologically, large cell masses with adenoid or cribriform pattern, forming cystic spaces at places were seen. Solid epithelial nests and a few ductal structures were also seen. Plumonary metastases were another unusual feature in our patient perhaps not reported before.
