Abstract:

Tonsillar metastasis of gastric cancer is very rare. We report a case of tonsillar metastasis from signet ring cell gastric carcinoma. We present the case of a 66-year-old man who was treated for gastric cancer in 2014. After two years and three months, the patient developed a locoregional recurrence. He underwent surgery and post-operative chemotherapy. During the follow-up, 21 months after the recurrence, the patient developed pharyngeal discomfort. A mass of 4 cm was observed in the palatine tonsil with multiple cutaneous metastases. It was diagnosed as a metastasis from gastric cancer. The patient died one month later.
