Dermatomyositis (DM) may be an opening event of neoplasia. Nasopharyngeal carcinomas (NPCs) were rarely associated with this phenomenon. We report the case of a 42 year old patient with lilac table eyelid erythema lasting for six months with the notion of earache and recent epistaxis. The diagnostic inquiry concluded at a stage T2 N1 M0 NPC associated with DM. After 6 courses of chemo and radiotherapy skin symptoms disappeared completely with a clear regression of the tumor.
