Abstract:

Cardiac metastasis is a rare finding. When present, it usually arises from melanoma, lung cancer, breast cancer as well as mediastinal tumors and hematologic malignancies. Head and neck tumors rarely metastasize to the heart making the encountering of such a case worth publishing to the medical society. The rarity of this finding also makes it hard for clinicians to recognize, diagnose and treat patients who present with heart metastasis.

Keywords:

Cardiac metastasis; Head and neck cancer; Squamous cell carcinoma
