Hepatic metastasis of anal squamous cell carcinoma


A 50-year-old woman was diagnosed with anal squamous cell carcinoma following a colonoscopy performed for positive test from the National Bowel Screening Programme. During the staging imaging, it was discovered to have a liver lesion that was atypical for metastasis. She underwent a segmental liver resection, and histopathology showed the liver lesion as a metastatic squamous cell carcinoma. We aim to discuss the incidence, presentation and management strategies for this rare hepatic metastasis of anal squamous cell carcinoma.
