Abstract

Introduction:

Most common site of metastasis from carcinoma cervix is lung, liver, bone and brain. Cutaneous metastasis is rare occurrence in carcinoma cervix. Incidence reported ranges from 0.1 to 2%. Common morphological pattern of skin metastases are nodules, plaques and inflammatory telangiectatic lesions.

Materials and Methods:

A 68 years old postmenopausal female diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma of cervix stage III B. She was given chemotherapy and radiotherapy and on regular follow up without no evidence of disease locally. After two years she presented with a sub cutaneous nodule of approximately 5×4 cm size just below the left scapula of one month duration. There was no similar swelling in any other region. It was rapidly increased in size and painful. The FNAC of the nodule showed metastatic from squamous cell carcinoma. PET scan showed metastases in bilateral lung and pelvic lymph node with no evidence of local disease. Excision biopsy of the nodule confirmed the diagnosis.

Conclusion:

Cutaneous metastases from carcinoma cervix are rare. Differential diagnoses include benign dermatitis, subcutaneous phycomycosis, and plaque like mycosis fungoides.
