Abstract

Metastasis to the mandibular condyle is rare, and such lesions should be identified by both clinical and pathological examinations. We experienced a case of adenocarcinoma occurring in the right mandibular condyle. A 65-year-old female with uterine cervical cancer showed condylar dysfunction. Imaging examinations revealed a tumor with bone destruction and a rapidly progressive course, while pathological examinations suggested metastasis originating from another site. Based on the clinical and pathological findings, the patient was diagnosed with condylar metastasis derived from the uterine cervix, in addition to a recurrence of uterine cervical cancer.
