  • [Title] Skin metastasis from typical carcinoid tumor of the lung.
  • We herein describe a rather infrequent case of a 60-year-old man with a skin metastasis from a typical carcinoid of the lung.
  • We discuss the histopathological and immunohistochemical features in the context of previous literature and comment issues related to difficulties in the differential diagnosis.
  • Dermatopathologists should be familiar with the metastatic carcinoid profile in order to avoid potential misdiagnoses and to properly address the patient management when the skin metastasis represents the first manifestation of an internal disease.

  • [Title] Cutaneous metastasis of pancreatic carcinoma as an initial symptom in the lower extremity with obstructive lymphedema treated by physiotherapy and lymphaticovenous shunt: a case report, review, and pathophysiological implications.
  • Cutaneous metastasis from pancreatic cancer is relatively rare as an initial symptom, and it is generally localized on the periumbilical area that is known as Sister Mary Joseph's nodule.
  • We report a rare case of a 49-year-old female who developed cutaneous metastasis of pancreatic cancer as an initial symptom.
  • The patient was referred to our department for treatment of lymphedema due to surgical treatment of cervical cancer and underwent combined physiotherapy and, 2 months later, a lymph venous anastomosis (LVA) for treatment of the lymphedema.
  • These facts suggest a possible relationship between cutaneous metastasis of carcinoma and treatment for lymphedema.
  • Alternatively, the lymphedematous limb may be a privileged site for cancer growth, and metastatic seeding could have taken place from pre-existing hematogenous spread at the time of operation.

  • [Title] Case of cutaneous malignant melanoma surviving 16 years with late recurrence.
  • Late recurrence, defined as that occurring 10 or more years after diagnosis, is an unusual event in cutaneous malignant melanoma (MM).
  • She was diagnosed with MM and the tumor was totally excised with 5 cm of the normal surrounding skin.
  • Eleven years after the operation, five in-transit metastases were found in her right limb.
  • They were all excised and beta-interferon (IFN-beta) was injected into the skin around the postoperative scars.
  • However, numerous new in-transit skin metastases have been emerging every year in her right limb.
  • Fifty-four in-transit skin metastases have so far been found.
  • Recently, there have been few in-transit metastases.
  • All in-transit metastatic lesions were excised and local IFN-beta injections were conducted continuously.
  • There is no evidence of metastases to the internal organs or lymph nodes.

  • [Title] Tissue microarray analysis of methylthioadenosine phosphorylase protein expression in melanocytic skin tumors.
  • BACKGROUND: Using tissue microarrays, we investigated whether methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP) protein expression is associated with clinicopathologic variables in benign and malignant melanocytic skin tumors.
  • Expression was significantly reduced in primary malignant melanomas and in melanoma metastases compared with benign nevi (P<.001 for both).
  • No difference was noted in MTAP expression between primary malignant melanomas and melanoma metastases.
  • In primary malignant melanomas, a Ki67-labeling index less than 5% was associated with MTAP expression (P = .04), suggesting that loss of MTAP expression is associated with proliferation.
  • Lymph node metastases demonstrated significantly higher MTAP expression compared with skin metastases (P = .01).
  • Among 26 patients with MTAP-positive melanomas and tumor recurrence, 18 patients who received interferon therapy had a significant benefit compared with 8 patients who did not receive interferon therapy (P = .009).

  • A microcystic adnexal carcinoma (MAC) on the left lateral chest was synchronously accompanied by both an adenocarcinoma and a granular cell tumor of the stomach in a 70-year-old Japanese male.
  • After a definitive diagnosis was made by an excisional biopsy, a second operation was performed with wider excision, followed by split thickness skin grafting.
  • Meanwhile, a punch biopsy from an erosive lesion, which was performed three days before the second operation, demonstrated gastric cancer.
  • The patient had since been followed for 2 years and 3 months without any sign of recurrence nor metastasis.
  • Three lymph nodes were excised for diagnostic purposes and found to be reactive hyperplasia without metastasis of skin tumor cells.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cutaneous metastasis of invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast to an infusaport site.
  • Cutaneous metastasis of a primary internal malignancy is a relatively common phenomenon, occurring in up to 10% of patients with noncutaneous cancer.
  • Cutaneous metastasis can occur via direct extension, hematologic or lymphatic dissemination, or surgical implantation.
  • The most common internal malignancy associated with the development of cutaneous metastases in females is breast cancer.
  • We present a patient with widely metastatic invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast, status postpalliative mastectomy and chest wall coverage with a vertical rectus abdominus myocutaneous flap, who acquired cellulitis and, subsequently, noncontiguous cutaneous metastasis of her breast cancer to the site of her central venous access device (ie, infusaport).
  • We hypothesize that the local inflammation associated with her recent bout of cellulitis and operations, in conjunction with the presence of a foreign body, may have predisposed the infusaport site to seeding by metastatic tumor cells.
  • This case highlights the importance of considering cutaneous metastasis in the differential diagnosis of new skin eruptions in patients with cancer.

  • INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous metastasis of thyroid cancer is rare.
  • We report here a case where follicular thyroid carcinoma metastasized to unusual skin locations.
  • Assessment after 2 years showed the presence of a small cervical residue, pulmonary metastases, and a high thyroglobulin level.
  • Response to treatment was poor, and cutaneous and subcutaneous nodules appeared on the abdomen, back, and front left thigh.
  • Biopsy of these lesions showed that they were malignant, and testing with anti-thyroglobulin antibodies confirmed the diagnosis of cutaneous metastasis of follicular thyroid carcinoma.
  • DISCUSSION: Although the rare cutaneous metastases of follicular thyroid carcinoma usually occur on the scalp, firm nodular cutaneous lesions that are painless and resist standard treatment in patients with a history of thyroid cancer should suggest the possibility of metastasis.

  • Unknown melanoma occurs as metastasis to skin, nodes or viscera, without a detectable cutaneous primary tumour.
  • We identified 93 cases of metastatic melanoma without evidence of primary; however, five of these patients had a history of a previous excision of a presumed benign lesion without histological examination and were excluded from analyses.
  • At diagnosis, metastases were cutaneous in 35.3% of cases, nodal in 43.2% and visceral in 17% of cases; in 4.5% of patients, both skin and nodes were involved.
  • In all cases, clinical inspection and staging procedures performed at diagnosis of metastatic disease failed to identify a primary melanoma.
  • Survival was longer in females and showed significant differences among patients with skin, lymph node or visceral involvement at diagnosis.

  • [Title] Cutaneous lesions, not just skin deep!
  • BACKGROUND: Cutaneous metastatic disease is not unusual but it may mimic inflammatory lesions.
  • The growth pattern of skin metastases is unpredictable and may differ from that of the primary tumour.
  • Skin metastases may present as rapidly growing, solitary sessile or polypoid vascular nodules that ulcerate or bleed.
  • AIM: To investigate the presenting complaints, surgical treatment and outcome of patients with cutaneous metastatic disease.
  • METHODS: We present three cases of metastatic skin cancer recently seen in our Department and review the clinical and pathological findings.
  • RESULTS: The finding of metastatic skin cancer is associated with a very poor prognosis and suggests widespread disease dissemination.
  • CONCLUSION: The paper emphasizes the importance of excisional biopsy and accurate tissue diagnosis of skin nodules.

  • [Title] Cutaneous metastasis of gastric adenocarcinoma: an exuberant and unusual clinical presentation.
  • There are different types of skin changes associated with internal malignancy.
  • One type is the skin involvement as a result of cutaneous metastasis from an internal tumor.
  • The skin is an uncommon site for distant metastasis; when it is present the most common sources are breast, lung, and colon.
  • Metastasis generally occurs after an internal malignancy had been discovered and signifies disseminated disease with a poor prognosis.
  • We report an exuberant and rare case of cutaneous metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma as the first sign of this serious visceral cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] An unusual case of advanced bilateral male breast cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Breast cancer in men is an uncommon disease.
  • Retrospective data indicate that stage- and age-matched male and female breast cancer is similar in presentation.
  • The aim is to find an adequate treatment for male breast cancer, which is not just extrapolated from its female counterpart.
  • CASE REPORT: We present the history of a 41-year-old man who was diagnosed with pT2 (3 cm) breast cancer in 2001.
  • In 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006, there were relapses with skin metastases, treated with several courses of chemotherapy.
  • In May 2007, the patient passed away from extensive tumor progression despite numerous attempts of local and systemic chemotherapeutic treatment.
  • CONCLUSION: Here, an unusual case of male breast cancer is reported.
  • It was first diagnosed at the age of 41 years, which is relatively young for male breast cancer.
  • Although the treatment was started at an early stage, several relapses and contralateral breast cancer occurred within 5 years and could no be controlled.

  • [Title] Pure choriocarcinoma of testis with rare gingival and skin metastases.
  • A 22-year-old man presented with complaints of gingival and skin lesions.
  • Fine-needle aspiration cytology from skin and gingival lesions was suggestive of metastatic deposits.
  • Patient underwent left high orchidectomy, and histopathological examination was consistent with the diagnosis of pure choriocarcinoma.
  • Although rare, cases of testicular neoplasms and especially choriocarcinoma of the testis leading to skin metastases have been reported, but case reports of choriocarcinoma of testis metastatic to gingiva have been reported exceptionally in the English literature.
  • We report this unique case of a young man with pure choricarcinoma of testis with unusual gingival and skin metastases.

  • [Title] Umblical metastasis in cervical cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: Objective cutaneous metastasis from carcinoma of the uterine cervix is an uncommon occurrence.
  • The outcome of patients with skin metastasis is usually poor as they are often associated with locoregional recurrence.
  • This metastasis impairs the quality of life and shortens survival.
  • Consequently, physicians should be aware of the possible existence of skin metastasis in cervical cancer.
  • Clinical suspicion should lead to a careful additional evaluation whenever a cutaneous nodule presents in the course of the disease.
  • CASE REPORT: We report a rare case of metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of cervix to the umbilicus.
  • Biopsy performed and metastatic squamous cell carcinoma was diagnosed.
  • CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, this is a rare reported occurrence of umbilical metastasis in cervical cancer without prior laparotomy or laparoscopy.
  • This metastatic lesion has a grave prognosis and the mean survival is about 3 months like our case.

  • INTRODUCTION: Specific cutaneous involvement in patients with multiple myeloma is very rare.
  • In this study, we analyzed 40 patients with specific cutaneous involvement from multiple myeloma, with no bony lesions underlying the skin lesions, and we reviewed the related literature.
  • OBJECTIVES: We were particularly interested in the clinical course of these patients, including survival once skin metastases had developed and the possible influence of the different treatments administered.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was completed by determining the histopathological pattern, the immunohistochemical profile, the type of immunoglobulin and immunoglobulin light chain produced by the neoplastic plasma cells that infiltrated the skin, as well as the cytogenetic characteristics of these cells.
  • RESULTS: From a clinical standpoint, the skin lesions consisted of multiple nodules or plaques with erythematous or violaceous coloration, and variable location.
  • In 39 of the 40 patients, the type of monoclonal immunoglobulin produced by the neoplastic plasma cells in the skin lesions was determined: 18 patients had IgA myeloma (5 IgAkappa and 13 IgAlambda), 19 patients had IgG myeloma (15 IgGkappa and 4 IgGlambda) and 2 patients had IgDlambda myeloma.
  • Despite aggressive chemotherapy, all of the patients died a few months after the skin lesions developed.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our series, a perfect correlation was seen between the findings of serum electrophoresis and the immunohistochemistry of the skin lesions with regard to the type of immunoglobulin and the immunoglobulin light chain restriction produced by the neoplastic plasma cells.
  • Patients with multiple myeloma have a very short survival period once specific skin lesions appear, regardless of the therapy administered.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary dermal melanoma: beginning or end of the metastatic process?
  • BACKGROUND: Solitary dermal melanoma (SDM) is confined to the dermal and/or subcutaneous tissue without an epidermal component.
  • It is unclear whether this lesion is a subtype of primary melanoma or distant cutaneous metastasis from an unknown primary.
  • Of 92 patients free of distant metastasis on initial presentation, 55 (60%) were observed and 37 (40%) underwent surgical nodal staging: regional metastases were identified in 7 (19%).
  • Thus, 21 of 92 patients (23%) had nodal metastasis identified during surgical nodal staging or postoperative nodal observation.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SDM resembles intermediate-thickness primary cutaneous melanoma with respect to prognostic characteristics and clinical evolution, but its rate of distant metastasis justifies radiographic staging and its high rate of regional node metastasis justifies wide excision and sentinel node biopsy.

  • Preoperative diagnosis of melanocytic lesion as a PSM is difficult, because of the heterogeneous magnetic resonance (MR) signal intensity, due to hemorrhagic foci and melanin deposits.
  • We describe the case of a 68 year-old male with a MR showing at Th8-Th9 level a well-defined intramedullary lesion; for the characteristics of hemorrhagic signal on MR and its association with a presumptive brain cavernoma, a preoperative diagnosis of intramedullary cavernous angioma was suspected.
  • Pathological examination revealed a melanoma, and for the absence of other localizations outside the spinal cord, a diagnosis of primary spinal melanoma was established.
  • The growth of PSM is slower and survival is longer than in the most common spinal metastasis from skin melanoma.
  • We report this case to underline the importance and difficulties concerning the preoperative diagnosis of a hemorrhagic intramedullary lesion.

  • Clinical and histopathological findings of skin metastasis show much variation.
  • When skin metastatic carcinoma is diagnosed by histopathologic evaluation of the involved skin, the treatment must be started as soon as possible after immediate identification of the primary internal organ and the stage of the disease.
  • Furthermore, one must investigate and infer the type of primary tumor from the previous history of internal malignancy, immunohistochemical findings and/or the results of some imaging.
  • When the primary origin is unidentified, detailed discussion is required about the diagnosis and therapeutic examination among the specialized departments including dermatology.

  • [Title] Recurrence in region of spared parotid gland after definitive intensity-modulated radiotherapy for head and neck cancer.
  • PURPOSE: To discuss the implications of three examples of periparotid recurrence after definitive intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for head and neck cancer (HNC).
  • The patients were treated using dose-painting IMRT with a dose of 70 Gy to the gross tumor volume and 59.4 Gy or 54 Gy to the high-risk or low-risk clinical tumor volume, respectively.
  • The third patient developed a dermal metastasis near the tail of a spared parotid gland.
  • CONCLUSION: For HNC patients receiving definitive IMRT, nonspecific positron emission tomography-negative periparotid nodules on pretreatment imaging should raise the index of suspicion for subclinical disease in the presence of multilevel or Level II nodal metastases.

  • [Title] Enhanced type I interferon signaling and recruitment of chemokine receptor CXCR3-expressing lymphocytes into the skin following treatment with the TLR7-agonist imiquimod.
  • INTRODUCTION: Imiquimod (Aldara) is an immune response modifier approved for the topical treatment of external genital and perianal warts which can mediate regression of several cutaneous malignancies [basal cell carcinoma (BCC), Bowen's disease, actinic keratosis, and metastasis of malignant melanoma].
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: In the present study we analyzed the expression of MxA, a protein specifically induced by type I IFNs during topical imiquimod treatment in several patients suffering from different cutaneous malignancies (BCC, cutaneous metastasis of melanoma, and breast cancer), and characterized the inflammatory infiltrate, along with the expression of chemokine receptor CXCR3, by immunohistochemistry.
  • DISCUSSION: Our in vivo results suggest an important role for TLR7-induced production of type I IFN, which links innate and adaptive immunity and promotes specific Th1-biased cellular immune response capable of eliminating cutaneous malignancies.

  • INTRODUCTION: Skin metastasis from internal carcinoma rarely occurs.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 90-year-old female patient was admitted to our surgical division with a diagnosis of anemia from a bleeding gastric adenocarcinoma.
  • Biopsies characterized it as a cutaneous metastasis from the gastric adenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Skin metastasis from carcinomas of the upper gastrointestinal tract is very rare.
  • Persisting erythematous nodules must be biopsied in order to diagnose cutaneous metastases and to recognize them early and start prompt therapy with anti-tumour agents before the occurrence of massive visceral metastases.

  • [Title] Contrasting frequencies of antitumor and anti-vaccine T cells in metastases of a melanoma patient vaccinated with a MAGE tumor antigen.
  • Melanoma patients have high frequencies of T cells directed against antigens of their tumor.
  • The frequency of these antitumor T cells in the blood is usually well above that of the anti-vaccine T cells observed after vaccination with tumor antigens.
  • In a patient vaccinated with a MAGE-3 antigen presented by HLA-A1, we measured the frequencies of anti-vaccine and antitumor T cells in several metastases to evaluate their respective potential contribution to tumor rejection.
  • Similar findings were made on a regressing cutaneous metastasis.
  • Thus, antitumor T cells were approximately 10,000 times more frequent than anti-vaccine T cells inside metastases, representing the majority of T cells present there.
  • This suggests that the anti-vaccine CTLs are not the effectors that kill the bulk of the tumor cells, but that their interaction with the tumor generates conditions enabling the stimulation of large numbers of antitumor CTLs that proceed to destroy the tumor cells.

  • [Title] CCR10 is expressed in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
  • Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is characterized by recruitment of malignant T-cell clones into the skin.
  • The mechanisms involved in tumor homing are still not fully elucidated, though chemokines and chemokine receptors have been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis.
  • Here, we demonstrate extensive expression of CCR10 in skin biopsies of patients with Sezary syndrome (SS, n = 3), mycosis fungoides (MF, n = 2) and unspecified CTCL (n = 3).
  • Expression of CCR5 was detected in 2 of the examined skin biopsies.
  • Our data support a potential role of CXCR3 in CTCL and strongly suggest that CCR10 and its ligand CCL27 may contribute to the skin infiltration of malignant T-cells in this group of lymphoproliferative disorders.

  • Reported is a case of advanced accessory breast cancer to which weekly injection of paclitaxel plus weekly oral administration of cyclophosphamide proved very effective.
  • The patient was a 49-year-old woman who noticed a tumor in the right axilla around October 2007 but then left it alone.
  • In October 2008, the patient visited a nearby physician who made a diagnosis of locally advanced accessory breast cancer.
  • Because the tumor enlarged despite endocrinotherapy, the patient was referred to our hospital in July 2009.
  • CT scan showed a tumor with a size of infant's head, multiple lymph node metastases and metastases to the skin, liver and bones.
  • Following weekly injection of paclitaxel plus weekly oral administration of cyclophosphamide for 4 months, the tumor in the right axilla and metastases to the lymph nodes, skin and liver disappeared.

  • [Title] Renal cell carcinoma presenting as an ominous metachronous scalp metastasis.
  • Skin metastases occur in 3% to 6% of RCCs.
  • There are only approximately 30 cases of scalp metastases secondary to RCC in the literature.
  • They usually occur late in metastatic disease and are a bad prognostic marker.
  • A 67-year-old Caucasian male presented with a metastatic scalp lesion, 10 years post-radical treatment for RCC.
  • His initial diagnosis was a T3bN0M0 RCC.
  • He presented with a raised erythematous lesion on his parietal scalp, the histology of which demonstrated late metastatic recurrence.
  • Shortly after this, he developed diffuse metastatic disease.
  • Metastatic RCC can occur many years after initial diagnosis and present in many forms.
  • Cutaneous metastatic lesions of RCC can mimic many other dermatologic conditions and carries an ominous prognosis.
  • It is therefore important not only for the urologist, but also general practitioners and patients to be vigilant of any new skin lesion as a portent of impending metastatic disease.

  • [Title] Papillary thyroid carcinoma metastatic to skin may herald aggressive disease.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe an unusual case of papillary thyroid carcinoma presenting as a skin lesion on the nose.
  • RESULTS: An asymptomatic 73-year-old man noted a skin lesion on his nose, which when biopsied, revealed histopathologic characteristics consistent with papillary thyroid cancer and was immunohistochemistry positive for thyroid transcription factor-1 and thyroglobulin, also consistent with a neoplasm of thyroid origin.
  • In addition, metastases to the sternum, spine, lungs, and liver were noted.
  • Although there was evidence of systemic metastases, total thyroidectomy was suggested to the patient to allow optimal treatment by radioactive iodine.
  • At operation, the cancer demonstrated fixation to the trachea and musculature, as well as infiltration of the surrounding soft tissues.
  • Cutaneous metastases of thyroid carcinoma are infrequent, and, as the presenting feature of thyroid carcinoma, are even more rare.
  • This case is noteworthy because a skin lesion was the presenting feature of thyroid carcinoma and histopathologic findings together with immunophenotyping provided the initial diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this patient, as in most published cases, the cutaneous metastasis was shown to occur in the setting of extensive metastases.

  • Choriocarcinoma is one of the malignant tumors of trophoblastic cells characterized by the secretion of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) (1-3).
  • Cutaneous metastasis is a rare presentation of choriocarcinoma but a poor prognostic sign because it is associated only with widespread disease (3-5).
  • After 17 cycles of combination chemotherapy, the serum hCG level has fallen from 700,000 to under 2.0 mIU/mL and the skin lesions have almost disappeared.

  • Penile cancer normally spreads in a predictable manner to the regional lymph nodes: first inguinal and then the pelvic nodes.
  • We report a case where the patient presented synchronously with secondary skin metastases and primary high grade penile squamous carcinoma.
  • In addition the patient also had pulmonary metastases, loco regional spread to the groin nodes, liver metastases and tumour erosion of a right sided rib.
  • The skin metastases appeared nodular, were firm in consistency and appeared intradermal.
  • Skin metastases have been described for a number of solid malignancies - the clinician must have an index of suspicion to relate a less obvious primary lesion with secondary skin lesions.

  • [Title] Cutaneous metastasis from follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma: a case diagnosed on cytology.
  • Fine needle aspiration from both sites disclosed a microfollicular architectural pattern on Giemsa stain and pale nuclei with nuclear grooves on Papanicolaou stain, indicating the possibility of follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma with metastasis to the scalp.
  • Histologic tissue evaluation confirmed the diagnosis.
  • Thus, a diligent search for nuclear features should be performed to enable a diagnosis of follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma on cytology.

  • [Title] Facial skin metastasis due to small-cell lung cancer: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous metastases in the facial region occur in less than 0.5% of patients with metastatic cancer.
  • They are an important finding and are not often the first sign leading to diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: A high index of suspicion is necessary for the early detection of facial cutaneous metastases.

  • [Title] Advanced cervical squamous cell carcinoma with skin metastasis.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although cervical cancer is a very common gynecologic malignancy, skin metastasis presenting as an initial sign of recurrent or persistent disease is extremely rare.
  • Some of skin lesions grew rapidly.
  • Excision biopsy was performed and showed metastatic carcinoma, favoring a squamous cell type.
  • Palliative chemotherapy was prescribed, and the skin lesions responded relatively well, but disease involving the vital organs still progressed during treatment.
  • The patient died of the disease 6 months after the appearance of the skin lesion.
  • CONCLUSION: This report supports the concept that skin metastasis is a late manifestation and an ominous sign for cervical cancer patients, and also indicates the uncontrolled or widespread metastasis of the disease.
