Accounting for only about 1% of all oral malignant lesions, metastatic tumors in the oral and maxillofacial region are relatively rare. More specifically, prevalence of these tumors in the tongue is even smaller, only 0.2%. Pancreatic cancer rarely metastasizes in this region. This case report describes the diagnosis of a malignant pancreatic tumor that metastasized to the tongue. Clinical manifestations are discussed in light of the rare nature and severity of this tumor.
