Pancreas metastasis of primary lung cancer is known to be very rare and if it occurs, most cases are disseminated malignant status and do not affect therapeutic plan. We experienced a case of lung cancer recurrence with solitary pancreas metastasis and mimicks primary pancreatic cancer. A 54-year old man was admitted to the hospital for further evaluation of pancreatic solitary mass. He underwent left pneumonectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy for treatment of lung adenocarcinoma 3 years ago. After surgical treatment, the lesion was confirmed metastatic adenocarcinoma of lung cancer origin. He was discharged and followed up for 24 months without recurrence.
