Primary manifestation of hepatocellular carcinoma as a cervical mass

Emin Karaman1, Harun Cansız, Engin Acıoğlu, Dilek Yılmaz Bayhan

Metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma to the head
and neck region is unusual and its exact frequency is
unknown. A 72-year-old male patient presented with
a mass on the left side of the neck. Clinical examination
showed multiple, painless, immobile lymphadenopathies
in the cervical region. Computed
tomography revealed both an irregular mass in the
cervical region and hepatomegaly accompanied by a
lobulated liver contour. The patient was diagnosed as
having hepatocellular carcinoma following an excisional
biopsy from the cervical mass and fine needle
aspiration biopsy from the liver.
