The term metastasis of a neoplasm refers to the spread of a previously localized, cohesive malignant tumour to a site distant from its site of origin with no contiguity with the primary site. The concept of metastases of lymphoma is a difficult one; a deposit in an organ of lymphoma is usually considered to be a component of generalized involvement by lymphoma rather than of metastatic spread. This chapter will focus on metastases in endocrine organs from carcinomas and sarcomas other than lymphoma.
