Abstract

Metastases to the parotid region are relatively infrequent and originate primarily from head and neck cancer. Metastases of an infraclavicular origin are uncommon. Moreover, metastasis from the carcinoma of urinary bladder (CUB) to any part of the head and neck, including parotid gland, is rare. Surgery and chemotherapy are usually offered. We report a case of solitary parotid metastasis from CUB, who was successfully treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) using CyberKnife. SBRT is a safe alternative in cases unwilling/unfit for surgery.
