Core Tip We present this case to alert endoscopists to the possibility of metastatic cells in the ostomy when the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy is the chosen method for the nutrition support of the patient with head and neck cancer. This is a very rare but a possible complication so, in these situations, probably we must think about other possibilities of tube placement namely using an overtube, the introducer method or performing a surgical gastrostomy.
