Abstract Skin metastases as manifestation of internal neoplasias constitute a 0.8\% of their initial presentation and generally imply an advanced stage of the disease and a short survival. The lung cancer metastasises to the skin in 2.8-24\% of the cases, generally in advanced stages of the disease, although in 7-19\%, skin metastases appear as first manifestation thereof. Sometimes, the study of the extent in the patients reveals that there are no metastases at other levels. We hereby present the case of a male diagnosed with a lung cancer whose first manifestation was the appearance of skin metastases.
