• Metastases to the skin from internal malignant neoplasms are an uncommon and often preterminal event. Cutaneous metastases from a carcinoma of the uterine cervix, however, have rarely been reported, even in the advanced stages of the disease. A patient was initially seen with cutaneous metastases and was found to have an extensive tumor in the pelvis, which proved to be a squamous cell carcinoma arising in the cervix.
