Tonsillar Metastasis of Gastric Carcinoma: A Case Report and Literature Review

Tonsillar metastasis of gastric cancer is very rare. We report a case of tonsillar metastasis from signet ring cell gastric carcinoma. We present the case of 66-year-old man who was treated for gastric cancer in 2014. After 2 years and 3 months, the patient developed a loco-regional recurrence. He underwent surgery and post-operative chemotherapy. During the follow-up, 21 months after the recurrence, the patient developed pharyngeal discomfort. A mass of 4 cm was observed in the palatine tonsil with multiple cutanoeus metastases. It was diagnosed as a metastasis from gastric cancer. The patient died one month later.
