Abstract

A 9-year review of our experience with head and neck metastasis from 845 urogenital tract tumors of the kidney, prostate, bladder, testicle, spermatic cord, penis, urethra, and ureter was performed. Thirty-one (3.7%) of these tumors developed metastases to the cervical and supraclavicular lymph nodes, scalp, thyroid gland, thyroid cartilage, parotid gland, retroorbit, mandible, nasal cavity, and paranasal sinuses. Unusual cases and a review of the literature are presented. The frequency of such metastases to the head and neck from various primaries, diagnostic application of current immunohistochemical methodology, and therapeutic alternatives are emphasized.
