Abstract

We report the CT findings in a 77-year-old woman with left-sided aryepiglottic fold metastasis from breast cancer diagnosed 7 years previously. The lesion obliterated the left piriform sinus, had a lobulated contour and showed mild and heterogeneous enhancement on a post-contrast CT examination. Biopsy of the lesion revealed metastasis from poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, compatible with metastasis of the breast carcinoma. Before detection of the laryngeal lesion, a second primary tumor in the right ovary was diagnosed. After right oopherectomy, histopathology revealed clear cell adenocarcinoma. The patient also had multiple subcutaneous metastases and bilateral cervical lymphadenopathies. Chemotherapy was applied to the patient.
