Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is an uncommon tumor that very rarely affects the lower respiratory tract and lung parenchyma. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of primary pulmonary ACC has been rarely described. We report here a 32 year-old female with peripheral ACC, diagnosed by percutaneous transthoracic FNAC. The cytological diagnosis was further confirmed by histological examination of the biopsy specimen.
