Bone metastasis from lung primary is not uncommon and about one-third of bone metastases originate from lung. However, skull bone metastasis is uncommon from lung carcinoma. Metastasis to skull bone and scalp as an initial presentation of lung carcinoma is a very rare phenomenon. We have diagnosed a case of calvarial metastasis with scalp swelling as an initial presentation of adenocarcinoma of lung by fine-needle aspiration cytology in an aged female. Radiologically, it was suggested as tuberculous lesion but cytology gave the correct diagnosis. Here, we present a rare case of calvarial metastasis as a presentation of adenocarcinoma of lung in an elderly female.
