Case Reports

Abstract

Metastases to the breast from extramammary tumours are uncommon and metastatis of floor of the mouth carcinoma to the breast is extremely rare. The clinical outcome of these patients remains dismal. We report the case of breast metastases from a floor of the mouth carcinoma successfully treated by conservative surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy with no demonstrable metastases 33 months after the initial diagnosis.
