Abstract

Laryngeal cancer is the second most common type of head and neck malignancy, representing approximately 45% of all head and neck cancers. Hematogenous spread to the liver rarely occurs without evidence of pulmonary and bone disease. We report a patient who had been treated 7 years earlier for laryngeal squamous cell cancer and who had isolated liver metastasis on fluorodeoxy D-glucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography.
