Title : A rare case of gastrointestinal stromal tumour with maxillary metastasis: A case report and literature review


In this presentation, we will talk about a 69-year-old woman who was referred for dental restoration. In the posterior region of the maxilla, a painless, bleeding-free swelling was discovered. There was no previous history of cancer in the patient's family. The panoramic view of the lesion demonstrated an irregular erosion of bone. Incisional biopsy represented a maxillary adenocarcinoma of metastatic origin. The patient was referred to a cancer treatment center for a whole body scan and finally, she was diagnosed with a GIST based on the whole body scan and also immunohistochemical staining on the tumor cells.
We aim to represent a different case of GIST with maxillary metastasis that in-time diagnosis by a dentist help her become aware of her gastrointestinal cancer.
