Abstract

We describe a case of cutaneous metastatic carcinoma with an unusual manifestation in a patient with lung cancer. A 71-year-old woman with adenocarcinoma of the lung presented with multiple grouped erythematous or light brown colored papules and nodules which had developed on the right lateral lower chest and upper abdomen along T6 dermatome for 4 months. Histopathological examination of a nodular lesion revealed moderately differentiated or well-formed, mucin-secreting glandular structures in the dermis, which were typical of cutaneous metastatic adenocarcinoma. This case represent an unusual case of zosteriform cutaneous metastatic adenocarcinoma.
