Secondary tumors of the liver from primary tumors arising in organs of the head and neck are rarely diagnosed during the patient's lifetime, though they should be suspected. A case of parotid mucoepidermoid carcinoma with liver metastases, treated by liver resection, is described. The clinical features and biological behavior of this secondary tumor are similar to those of the rare primary mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the liver. This case is unique because it is such a very rare occurrence.
