Abstract

We report a case of 55 years-old female with colorectal adenocarcinoma and metastasis to skin and breast tissue. Most common site of metastases of colorectal carcinoma is lung and liver. Cutaneous metastases are rare and account for only 4-6.5% of such cases. Often skin metastasis is to the postsurgical scars as observed as in our case. After a careful review of literature less than 30 cases have been found to have metastasis from colon adenocarcinoma to breast. To have two uncommon sites metastatic in one patient to best of our knowledge is not being described. Prognosis is poor because it is usually indicative of disseminated disease.
