Abstract

Cutaneous metastasis from lung cancer, especially small cell type is rarely seen in dermatologic clinics. In general, lung cancer, which spreads to brain, bone, liver, and adrenal glands, is responsible for the majority of skin metastasis in men and is the second only to breast cancer as the source of skin metastasis in women. Clinically, lung cancer may be signaled only by cutaneous metastasis which reflects the progression of the primary malignancy and often portends a fatal outcome. Herein we report two cases of skin metastasis from small cell lung cancer.
