Metastasis of adenoid cystic carcinoma to the kidney is rare. We present a case of a 50 year old male with complaints and radiological findings suggestive of renal cell carcinoma and lung deposits. However, fine needle aspiration was suggestive of adenoid cystic carcinoma metastatic deposits. It was later elicited that the patient had undergone surgery for parotid tumour seven years back which on histology was an adenoid cystic carcinoma. The case is being presented for its rarity.
