Abstract

Treatment of metastatic carcinoma of the oral cavity can be a challenge due to its rarity. The current case report details metastatic carcinoma of the mandible originating from follicular thyroid carcinoma, which is the second most prevalent tumor of the thyroid. As the mandibular lesion developed, the primary thyroid lesion of thyroid. Here, we report a case of metastatic carcinoma of the mandible in a 67-year-old female that was treated with partial mandibulectomy and fibular free flap.
