Abstract

Skin is an uncommon site for metastasis of visceral malignancies. Cutaneous metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma is very rare with variable presentations ranging from ulcers to nodules suggesting a poor clinical outcome with limited treatment options. These lesions may present as the first symptom of an internal malignancy or may develop later in the disease process. We report a case of multifocal and multiple cutaneous metastasis in a patient with gastric adenocarcinoma.
