Abstract

Abstract Objective.Cutaneous metastasis from carcinoma of the uterine cervix is an uncommon occurrence. The majority of cases are diagnosed as recurrent carcinoma. This is believed to be the first report of hematogenous skin metastases present at the diagnosis of cervical carcinoma. Methods. A case of a patient with cutaneous manifestations at the time of cervical carcinoma diagnosis is presented. Results. Two lesions on the patient's hand occurred at points of recent skin puncture. These were biopsy-proven metastases from her primary cervical carcinoma. Conclusion. Skin metastases from cervical carcinoma are rare and represent a poor prognostic sign.
