Abstract
This report presented the very rare case of a patient with a metastasis in the left palatine tonsil from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A 69-year-old man suffered from an about 20-mm mass in the left palatine tonsil. The biopsy revealed that the mass in the palatine tonsil was a metastatic lesion from HCC. The patient underwent a left palatine tonsillectomy, and metastasis from HCC has not recurred after the operation. With the presentation of the present case, we looked through the so-far reported literature.
