(2 votes)


We report a rare case of a metastatic anterior neck lesion originating from a hepatocellular carcinoma in a 62-year-old man who presented with rapidly progressing, painless neck lump. The patient was investigated with CT and MRI imaging, a pathological diagnosis was achieved following fine needle aspiration and palliative care strategy implemented augmented by the siting of tracheostomy and fluoroscopic guided embolization of the tumour’s feeding neck vessels. We highlight the rarity of the tumour, and the importance of the wide multi-disciplinary approach required to generate an appropriate management strategy in such unusual cases.
