Regional metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common primary tumour of the liver to the mandible is rare. We present a case of a HCC metastasis to the mandibular condyle with no other extrahepatic metastases sites in a 59-year-old man. Incidental extrahepatic lesions in more uncommon sites should perhaps be investigated as potential areas for metastases, even if metastatic disease has not been found in the more common areas.
