The occurrence of multiple dermal and subcutaneous nodules and tumors as a significant sign in a case of a metastatic bronchial carcinoid is reported. The clinical manifestations of bronchial carcinoid often differ from those associated with the more common malignant carcinoids of the intestinal tract. It is possible that these differences might be due to an enzymatic defect in the bronchial carcinoid tumors.
