Özet

Background: Metastases to the parotid and thyroid glands from breast cancer are rare and have a poor prognosis. Case Report: We present the case of a patient with breast carcinoma and synchronous involvement of both the parotid and thyroid gland, and review the literature on this subject. Conclusion: Metastatic malignancy in clinically suspect thyroid and parotid nodules could be detected more frequently with routine use of fine needle aspiration biopsy.
