Abstract

Cases of carcinoma metastatic to the nasal cavity are rare. We report the case of a 63-year-old woman with a metastasis to the nasal cavity from a primary tracheal adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). The nasal tumor was treated with surgical resection. No evidence of any local recurrence was observed at 4 years of follow-up. To the best of our knowledge, no case of a tracheal ACC metastatic to the nasal cavity has been previously reported in the literature. Although rare, metastatic disease to the nasal cavity should be considered in patients who have a known primary carcinoma elsewhere and who present with nasal symptoms.
