Abstract:   (18697 Views)
Background: Skin metastasis from abdominal cancers occurs as infiltration or paraneoplastic syndromes. Liver and lung are the most common locations of distant metastases of colorectal cancer (CRC), but CRC skin metastases are very rare.
Case Reports: We describe a 55- year old patient with wide spread cutaneous metastasis from a previously treated known case of adenocarcinoma of the colon. Interestingly, liver and lung, as the most common site of metastasis of CRC, had not been involved.
Conclusion: Although, skin metastasis is a worse prognostic factor, its occurrence in CRC patient doesn’t necessarily present end stage disease. So, it could be treated by early diagnosis of susceptible cutaneous lesions.
Keywords: Colorectal cancer metastasis, Generalized skin metastasis, Colon ademocarcinoma
