Summary


Introduction:
Metastasis is the primary cause of death among patients with colon cancer. Metastatic tumors in the oral cavity originating from the colon are rare, and the number of relevant clinical studies is limited.
Case report:
We report a case of a 79 year old woman who developed a mandibular tumefaction. Biopsy was performed and made the diagnosis of metastasis from colon cancer. The patient received palliative radiotherapy for the mandibular mass lesion.
Conclusion:
Oral metastatic tumor from colorectal cancer is very uncommon and is often found with advanced recurrent cancer. Therapeutic management that includes palliative treatment is the usual therapeutic option.
