A case of cutaneous metastases of gastric carcinoma showing peculiar clinical features

A case of cutaneous metastases of gastric carcinoma showing peculiar clinical features

Journal of Dermatology 18(10): 619-623

A 52-year-old male patient presented with multiple cutaneous nodules on the face, trunk, and upper extremities. Examination of a skin biopsy specimen disclosed numerous signet ring cells throughout the dermis. Histopathologic examination of the stomach, along with gastroscopy, revealed that the cutaneous metastases were of gastric origin. The metastatic skin lesion on the shoulder and the back of the patient grew relatively rapidly, showing an erysipelas-like lesion followed by prominently large tumor masses. The clinical appearance seen in our case is thought to be rare. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy appeared to be effective in reducing some tumors and the swelling on the anterior of the neck, and in prolonging life.
