Two Cases of Cutaneous Metastasis from Hepatoma Mimicking Pyogenic Granuloma


Metastatic cancers to the skin are rare and usually originate in the lung, breast, large intestine, or ovary. They commonly present with lesions in the area overlying the neoplasm, but the morphology, pattern and distribution may vary. Hepatoma metastasizes to the lungs, adrenal glands, regional lymph nodes, portal vein, gallbladder, pancreas, bone, hepatic vein, kidney, mediastinum, less commonly, the heart, peritoneum, diaphragm, and bone marrow. Cutaneous metastasis from hepatoma occurs very rarely and, if present, it usually presents as solitary or multiple nodules. We report two cases of cutaneous metastases from hepatoma.
