We performed surgical resection for a case of hepatic metastasis of an adenoid cystic carcinoma of the parotid gland. A 53-year-old woman underwent parotidectomy for primary adenoid cystic carcinoma in 2004. In 2005, she underwent resection of a local recurrence. However, in 2012, 8 years after primary tumor resection, abdominal ultrasonography revealed a hepatic tumor in the lateral segment, for which we performed laparoscopic partial hepatectomy. The hepatic tumor was histologically diagnosed as a hepatic metastasis of the adenoid cystic carcinoma of the parotid gland. At 8 postoperative months, no further recurrence was observed.
