Cervical ganglioneuromas are extremely rare with approximately six case reports. The current report highlights a unique collision tumor between a cervical ganglioneuroma and a metastatic undifferentiated carcinoma arising from a primary gingival mass. A 53-year-old male presented with a 2 cm left gingival mass that was excised and treated with systemic chemotherapy. Consequently, 9 months later, he developed a 3.2 cm left submandibular mass followed by recurrence of the left gingival mass. From the clinicopathologic perspective, this had to be separated from the differentials: ganglioneuroblastoma or metastatic involvement of a lymph node from primary gingival undifferentiated carcinoma.
