Abstract

Pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma is a rare variant of ductal adenocarcinoma and accounts for only 1~4% of exocrine pancreatic malignancies. Although pancreatic carcinoma shows an aggressive biologic behavior, cutaneous metastasis from pancreas carcinoma is rare. We report a case of a pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma which clinically manifested as two firm nodules on the right upper extremity. It was this first clinical manifestation that made it possible to diagnose pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma.
