In most cases, cutaneous metastases develop after the diagnosis of the primary internal malignancy has been established, but sometimes they can be discovered earlier or simultaneously. We describe a case of a 90-year-old woman who presented to the emergency room in poor general condition, with cutaneous lesions characterized by hot, infiltrated, violaceous and erythematous plaques involving the left chest wall. The clinical and histopathological findings were consistent with the recently described variant of inflammatory cutaneous metastatic carcinoma named carcinoma hemorrhagiectoides...

Carcinoid tumors are uncommon neoplasms of neuroendocrine origin that generally arise in the gastrointestinal or bronchopulmonary tracts and typically are characterized by an indolent clinical course. Metastases from these primary neoplasms more commonly affect the viscera, with rare reports of cutaneous metastases to the skin. We report the case of a patient with a cutaneous carcinoid metastasis that was incidentally brought to our attention because of the exquisite tenderness of the lesion. A brief review of the literature also is provided...

Primary cutaneous angiosarcoma is a rare vascular tumor usually affecting the whole body, and its hypermetabolic features on F-FDG PET/CT may be confused with those of infection, metastasis, or primary malignancy. This is a case report of a cutaneous angiosarcoma of the lower anterior abdomen showing increased FDG uptake on F-FDG PET/CT mimicking a cutaneous metastasis in an 84-year-old woman with cervical cancer.

Seeding of a central nervous system malignancy to the abdominal cavity is an uncommon but well documented complication of a ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt. However, the metastasis of a primary gastrointestinal cancer to the skin via a VP shunt is extremely rare. We report the clinical case of an 85-year-old male who presented with a right upper quadrant nodule over his shunt, which on histopathology and tumour marker profile was diagnosed as an adenocarcinoma of likely upper gastrointestinal origin. This case illustrates the importance of proceeding to biopsy to inform prognosis and management, despite the risks of shunt infection...

BACKGROUND: The possible chemotherapy effects on symptoms in late stages of palliative chemotherapy are seldom registered in clinical practice or investigated as primary outcomes. The aim was therefore to study physicians' opinions and experiences about chemotherapy effects on symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty-five physicians (mainly oncologists) with variation as regards age, gender and experience were included in a qualitative study with semi-structured interviews...

BACKGROUND: Skin metastases occur in 0.7% to 9% of all patients with cancer and are usually considered a late event in the evolution of most visceral carcinomas. The development of a nodular metastatic lesion on the nasal tip is known as clown nose sign. MAIN OBSERVATION: We report a 64-year-old man that developed a nodular lesion on his nasal tip as first manifestation of squamous lung carcinoma. CONCLUSION: The biopsy of the cutaneous metastasis may be helpful to histopathologically confirm the suspected primary tumour avoiding invasive diagnostic procedures...

Angiosarcoma is a rare and aggressive tumor with high rates of metastasis and relapse. It shows a particular predilection for the skin and superficial soft tissues. We report three distinct and typical cases of angiosarcoma that were diagnosed in a single dermatology clinic over the course of less than a year: i) Angiosarcoma in lower limb affected by chronic lymphedema, featuring Stewart-Treves syndrome; ii) a case of the most common type of angiosarcoma loated in the scalp and face of elderly man and; iii) a skin Angiosarcoma in previously irradiated breast...

We present a case of cutaneous apocrine carcinoma arising in the axilla of a 71-year-old man. The tumor had a significant component of histiocytoid and signet-ring cells as well as in situ carcinoma within the apocrine glands. The cells expressed GATA3, gross cystic disease fluid protein 15, androgen receptor, and E-cadherin. Estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 were negative. Clinical correlation was required to rule out a metastasis from the breast or the gastrointestinal tract...

A 47-year-old female patient presented with painless skin colored and erythematous papules coalesced to form plaques over lower abdomen for 10 days. She had undergone exploratory laparotomy with hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy 1 month ago, and histopathology was reported as Krukenbergs tumor. She was getting evaluated for primary, when she was referred to dermatology. A clinical diagnosis of cutaneous infiltration of tumor was made, and biopsy was done from a representative lesion which showed features suggestive of metastatic poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma...

Tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma, which represents 10% of head and neck malignancies, rarely manifests with cutaneous metastases; to date, only three prior patients with tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma have been reported to develop cutaneous metastases. We describe the clinical features of a 59-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsil who developed cutaneous metastases within his prior radiation port and review the literature of prior patients with cutaneous metastases from tonsillar squamous cell carcinoma...

This article examines the clinical presentation of ocular metastasis from an infiltrating lobular breast carcinoma. We examined a conjunctival biopsy from a 69-year-old woman who developed unilateral conjunctival inflammation together with a neurotrophic corneal ulcer and proptosis. Infiltrating lobular breast carcinoma (ILBC) was diagnosed using routine histology and immunohistochemistry. She had a past history of a hormone receptor-positive infiltrating ILBC 11 years ago with cutaneous and diffuse osteoblastic metastases, and she was kept under treatment with lezotrol...

In this opinion paper of the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation, leading experts in the field report on their current clinical experience with a novel approach for thyroid gland surgery, namely, "transoral thyroidectomy" (TOT). This feasible and novel surgical procedure does not require visible incisions and is, therefore, a truly scarless surgery. Patients meeting the following criteria can be considered as candidates for TOT: (a) an ultrasonographically (US) estimated thyroid diameter ≤10 cm; (b) US-estimated gland volume ≤45 mL; (c) nodule size ≤50 mm; (d) presence of a benign tumor such as a thyroid cyst or a single- or multi-nodular goiter; (e) Bethesda 3 and/or 4 category and (f) papillary microcarcinoma without the evidence of metastasis...

A 59-year-old man was referred to the Kochi Medical School Hospital due to left shoulder pain. Physical examination revealed a nodular, painful mass lesion in the subcutaneous tissue of the right chest wall, with a diameter of ~2 cm. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a large ulcerated tumor in the lower gastric body near the lesser curvature, and biopsy specimens of the gastric and humeral lesions revealed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. Abdominal computed tomography revealed multiple low-density lesions in the liver and a well-defined, 2...

Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin (SCC) represents one of the most common cancers in the general population and is associated with a substantial risk of metastasis. Previous work uncovered the functional role of CYFIP1 in epithelial tumors as an invasion inhibitor. It was down-regulated in some cancers and correlated with the metastatic properties of these malignant cells. We investigated its role and expression mechanisms in SCC. We analyzed the expression of CYFIP1 in patient derived SCC, primary keratinocytes and SCC cell lines, and correlated it to the differentiation and NOTCH1 levels...
