  • Poorly Differentiated Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Colon from teh Salivary Gland: A Rare Case Report by Meghan Dorrell  Published in: The Cutting Edge Volume 11 Issue 2 2021  Abstract: There are less than 100 cases reported of primary squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in the rectum and sigmoid colon.1 Metastatic SCC to the colon is even more unusual and to our knowledge, no cases have been reported in the literature. Presented here is a case of a 65-year-old male with metastatic poorly differentiated colon carcinoma showing squamoid features histologically similar to the primary tumor of the submandibular gland. The College of American Pathologists (CAP) grossing protocols for a submandibular gland and colon, specimen handling, and diagnostic reporting were followed. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) were performed and supported the diagnosis of poorly differentiated SCC.
