A 75 year old male admitted with confusion was diagnosed to have small cell cancer in the right lower lobe of lung. On detailed evaluation he was also found to have a etastatic malignant ulcer over his left inguinal region. The rarity of skin metastases in lung cancer, the infrequent propensity of small cell cancer to metastasize to the skin, the ulcerative nature of skin metastasis and its location far off from the primary in the lung prompted us to report this case.
