Abstract

• Cutaneous metastases develop in approximately 4% of patients with internal malignant neoplasms. Certain tumors spread hematogenously, while others disseminate via the lymphatics. When arising in areas of previously damaged skin, the characteristic clinical appearance of metastatic lesions may be altered. A patient had metastatic adenocarcinoma of the uterus that developed in an area of chronic radiation dermatitis.
