Abstract

A case of metastatic breast adenocarcinoma to the condyle in a 55-year-old white woman is reported. Highlights of this case presentation include the rarity of reported metastatic lesions to the condyle, a negative bone scan 2 months before the bone biopsy, the existence of a pathologic fracture as the only persistent symptom of the lesion, initial symptoms suggestive of temporomandibular joint disorder, and the uncommon type of breast carcinoma.
