Abstract

Although carcinoma of the cervix is one of the most common malignancy in women, haematogenous metastasis are relatively infrequent, and cutaneous metastases are unusual even in the late stage of disease. We report an unusual case of cutaneous metastasis in a 37-years-old woman that preceded the diagnosis of cervical carcinoma. Following investigations revealed a carcinoma of the uterine cervix without other metastasis, so after the excision of the cutaneous metastasis the patient received three cycles of chemotherapy followed by pelvic chemoradiation on the primary tumor. The patient died three months after. Like what we found in the literature, cutaneous metastasis of cervical cancer are associated with a poor prognosis and physicians should be aware of signs of skin metastasis from cervical carcinoma and judiciously select patients with subcutaneous nodule for biopsy.
