Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, I.T.S.-Center for Dental Studies and Research Muradnagar, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, India.Journal of cancer research and therapeutics (Impact Factor: 0.79). 04/2013; 9(1):105-7. DOI: 10.4103/0973-1482.110395
The oral cavity constitutes a site of low prevalence for metastasis of malignant tumors. However, oral metastasis of a renal origin is relatively more common and represents 2% of all cancer deaths. Renal cancer may metastasize to any part of the body, with a 15% risk of metastasis to the head and neck regions, and pose one of the greatest diagnostic challenges in medical sciences. Approximately 25% of patients have a metastatic disease at initial assessment, which is often responsible for initiating the diagnosis in the first place. Here we present a review of literature of renal cell carcinoma along with a case of gingival metastasis.
