Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the ear represents a high-risk tumor location with an increased risk of metastasis and local tissue invasion. However, a metastatic carcinoma of the conjunctiva is uncommon. We present an unusual case of an 80-year-old man who underwent a tumorectomy of a squamous cell carcinoma of the lobule of both ears, and present a bilateral ocular squamous neoplasia pathologically confirmed. Medical examination revealed a tumor recurrence in the right ear. A cervico-thoraco-abdomino-pelvic CT showed suspicious pulmonary nodular lesion with deep lymphadenopathy, and an iliac bone lysis. The patient declined adjuvant chemo-radiation therapy.
