Abstract

Abstract SECONDARY carcinoma causing facial nerve paralysis is a rare entity, and in view of this, a case report is presented with color figures. Friedmann and Osborn1 reviewed the literature and noted that there were 64 cases of metastases to the ear, nose, and throat previously published and these included two cases of metastasis to the temporal bone, both from adenocarcinoma of kidney. They noted that half of these metastases were to the nose and the commonest origin was renal cancer, and they stated that metastasis to the ear was much less common than to other ear, nose, and throat sites. In 15 years at the Royal National Ear, Nose, and Throat Hospital in London, they had ten cases of metastasis to the ear, nose, and throat area and four of these were in the temporal bone; two cases from the larynx, one from the breast, and one from a References 1.
