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. (Gut and Liver 2009;3:127-129)
