A case of metastatic papillary carcinoma to the mandible is presented. Though relatively rare, metastatic tumours of the mandible should be included in the differential diagnosis of the tumours in the parotid region. For the primary site ; being in the cervicofacial region, the thyroid gland must be considered by the head and neck surgeon.
