Medicina oral : organo oficial de la Sociedad Espanola de Medicina Oral y de la Academia Iberoamericana de Patologia y Medicina Bucal
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is quite uncommon in Europe and USA, although in this last country more than 13,000 new cases are diagnosed every year. Mandibular metastases are unusual, with only 50 cases documented. In this article, we present a 54 year-old male patient with a metastasis of HCC in right mandibular body, one year after treating the primary tumor. Curettage and biopsy of the lesion was performed, followed by a profuse hemorrhage. The patient expired six months after the biopsy,pmid:15292875 fatcat:petffwpsondfvl6zgwh37fmxiy
