Metastatic squamous carcinoma manifesting as a periapical lesion.

Thompson I.O. ; Phillips V.M. ; Kalan M. (1992)


Periapical pathoses which often appear as vague radiolucent areas on routine roentgenographs, are treated by endodontic therapy alone or followed by apicoectomy. Clinicians as well as histopathologists should be aware that a metastatic carcinoma to the jaws can mimic apical lesions. A case of metastatic carcinoma from the larynx, which manifested as a periapical lesion with the clinical signs and symptoms of pulpal pathology, is described.
