A 26-year-old-man developed cutaneous metastasis several months before symptoms leading to the diagnosis of carcinoma of the urinary bladder occurred. In the protracted course of his disease multiple histologically confirmed cutaneous metastases developed in addition to a solitary metastatic nodule on the conjunctiva of the left upper eyelid. This man represents the youngest reported patient with cutaneous metastases from carcinoma of the urinary bladder, and the first such case to show metastatic involvement of the visible mucous membranes.
