Metastases to the skin from internal tumors are uncommon, yet they may be the first presentation of such malignancies. They usually arise from the breast, lung and large bowel. Cutaneous metastases from gastric adenocarcinoma are extremely rare. We report a case of gastric adenocarcinoma that at presentation had multiple clinically benign looking skin nodules. Fine needle aspiration cytology of the cutaneous nodule revealed metastatic deposits. The current literature on cutaneous metastases of gastric carcinoma is reviewed in this case report.
