A Case of Skin Metastasis from Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma of Parotid Gland Mimicking Radiodermatitis

Furthermore, it can often manifest as inflammatory type of skin metastasis and mimic a radiodermatitis. We report a case of a 31-year-old Korean man with cutaneous metastasis originated from parotid gland mucoepidermoid carcoinoma which mimicked clinically a radiodermatitis.
