Two clinical cases are reported of mandibular swelling caused by metastatic jaw neoplasms. They analyse. The clinical characteristics of the swelling are analysed and all laboratory and radiographic tests performed are examined. It is concluded that metastatic localisations in the maxillofacial bone are very rare, but that the mandible is certainly the most frequent site. The authors also highlight the fact that the presence of metastatic lesions in the jaw may be the first symptom of the neoplastic disease.
