Cutaneous metastasis of internal malignancies is not common. Its occurrence is a sign of advanced disease, carrying a very poor prognosis. The survival in most reported cases is a few months. We present a case of cutaneous metastasis of bronchogenic carcinoma that survived almost 3 years after the initial appearance of the cutaneous lesions.
