Metastases to the skull are very common in patients with disseminated skeletal metastatic disease, although they are often asymptomatic. In children both neuroblastoma and Ewing sarcoma are encountered. Although over half of all skeletal metastases are asymptomatic, they can cause symptoms like: Mass effect on adjacent structures, compression of brain, focal neurological deficits, seizures, mechanical instability, occipital condyle compression fracture, temporomandibular joint instability.
