Abstract:   (569 Views)
Purpose: To report a case of limbal mass that was the initial manifestation of metastasis from an undifferentiated carcinoma of parotid gland.
Case Report: A 56-year-old man without known systemic disease developed simultaneously a limbal and parotid mass in his left side. He underwent excisional biopsy of the limbal mass and subtotal parotidectomy in the same session and underwent systemic evaluations. Histopathologic evaluations and immunohistochemistry staining of both limbal and parotidal masses disclosed an undifferentiated carcinoma of both sites. Further evaluations revealed no other sites of involvement or metastasis. The patient underwent systemic chemotherapy and local radiotherapy.
Conclusion: This is the first report of limbal mass that was the initial manifestation of metastasis from an undifferentiated carcinoma of parotid gland. It should be considered in the differential diagnosis of limbal masses.
Keywords: Limbus, Parotid Gland, Undifferentiated Carcinoma
