Cancer of the tongue and other parts of the oral cavity are a leading cause of death in the worldwide population. The common sites of metastasis from oral cavity cancers are lung and bone. Endobronchial metastasis of an extra-thoracic malignancy is a rare phenomenon and such metastases from a malignancy of the tongue are almost unheard of. We present a case of carcinoma oral cavity with subsite tongue that after radical therapy of local site had an unusual site of distant metastasis in the right main bronchus, along with metastases to the lung parenchyma and right third rib.
