Abstract

We describe a rare case of metastasis to the paranasal sinuses. The lesion had an immunohistochemical (positivity for cytokeratin 20, negativity for cytokeratin 7, overexpression of p53) and in situ hybridisation profile (neither lesions showed deletion for p53) consistent with metastasis from the earlier rectal adenocarcinoma. The correct typification of intestinal-type neoplasms requires a combination of morphological, immunohistochemical and, sometimes, molecular analysis.
