Introduction: Palatine Tonsil (PT) is very rich in its vascularization despite the tumor metastasis to this region is rare. Although metastasis from various organs to PT has been reported, the metastasis of pancreatic malignancies to PT is very rare. Case Report: We present a 70-year-old woman with histopathological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas of its metastasis leading to ulcerovegetan appearance in the right PT. Conclusion/Discussion: Early diagnosis and treatment planning is important because of the poor prognosis of metastatic PT malignancies. In this regard, it was aimed to increase the awareness of the reader with an extremely rare clinicopathologic case.
