Colonic adenocarcinoma presenting as a cutaneous metastasis in an old operative scar.  [cached]

Journal of Postgraduate Medicine , 2003,
Abstract: Cutaneous metastasis from colon cancer is an uncommon event that usually occurs after identification of the primary tumour and generally indicates diffuse disease. Incisional metastasis occasionally occurs following laparoscopic or open colon cancer resection. However, to the authors′ knowledge only one previous case of colon cancer presenting as a cutaneous metastasis in an old operative scar has been reported. We describe a case of colon cancer presenting as a cutaneous metastasis in an old cholecystectomy scar and discuss possible pathophysiological mechanisms.

Abstract: Cutaneous metastasis is an uncommon manifestation of visceral malignancy and a grave prognostic indicator. In extremely rare cases it may be the presenting sign of underlying malignancy. Here we report two cases of carcinoma gall bladder that presented with skin nodule. Fine needle aspiration cytology of these nodules revealed metastatic deposits of adenocarcinoma and was instrumental in establishing the primaries.

Abstract: Cutaneous metastases of rectal carcinoma is a rare event. It occurs in fewer than 4% of all patients with rectal cancer. When present, it typically signifies a disseminated disease with a poor prognosis. Early detection and proper diagnosis of metastatic rectal cancer can significantly alter treatment and prognosis. We report a 70-year-oldmale who underwent rectal resection with permanent colostomy for rectal adenocarcinoma since seven years. The patient recently developed multiple skin nodules, mainly in his face, scalp, and upper trunk, associated with itching. Fine needle aspiration cytology from a face nodule was done which revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma associated with severe inflammation. Cutaneous metastasis of rectaladenocarcinoma is an unusual event that presents mainly in the form of skin nodules and could be the first sign of metastasis. Early diagnosis of cutaneous metastasis in these patients is important because it can alter treatment and prognosis.

Abstract: A 5.5-year-old male presented with asymptomatic nodules and plaques on his scalp and pubic region of 2 months′ duration. He was having productive cough, haemoptysis, chest pain, anorexia and weight loss and receiving antitubercular treatment for these symptoms for last 3 months. Clinical diagnosis of cutaneous metastatic disease was made. Chest x-ray revealed multiple coin shaped shadows on both sides with pleural effusion. Routine investigations were normal except for anemia and hyperuricemia. Biopsy of skin nodules showed features of metastatic adenocarcinoma. Features and significance of cutaneous metastases are discussed.

Abstract: A 90-year-old female patient was admitted to our surgical division with a diagnosis of anemia from a bleeding gastric adenocarcinoma. She underwent a gastric resection and Billroth II retrocolic Hofmeister/Finsterer reconstruction. She developed an enteric fistula, which needed a permanent abdominal drain until the 60th postoperative day. After 12 months she was readmitted to our division with subacute small bowel obstruction and an erythematous swelling on the right side of the abdomen. Biopsies characterized it as a cutaneous metastasis from the gastric adenocarcinoma. No surgical therapy was performed given her poor clinical condition.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.Metastasis to the skin from internal carcinoma rarely occurs and it has an incidence of 0.7 to 9% [1,2]. Skin metastases may be the first sign of an unknown malignancy. However, it can also occur during follow-up [3,4]. The most common origin of cutaneous metastases is breast cancer in women and lung cancer in men. Skin metastases from gastric adenocarcinoma are rare [3,5]. Surgical drain site metastasis is rare, but possible [6]. It usually occurs after palliative resection in which the tumour mass remains. We describe here a patient who developed a skin metastasis from a gastric adenocarcinoma in the location of a previous surgical drain.A 90-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency department of our hospital because of a syncope episode. A routine blood test showed severe anaemia (Hb 6.6 gr/dl) and physical examination showed no abnormalities but traces of melaena. She had a previous history of nicotinism and ischaemic heart disease with hyperkinetic arrhythmia. She was hospitalized on a medical ward to receive blood transfusion

Abstract: Choroidal or cutaneous metastasis of gastric cancer is rare. Gastrointestinal cancer was found in only 4% in patients with uveal metastasis. Choroidal metastasis from gastric cancer was reported in two cases in earlier literature. The frequency of gastric cancer as a primary lesion was 6% in cutaneous metastasis of men, and cutaneous metastasis occurs in 0.8% of all gastric cancers. We report a patient with gastric adenocarcinoma who presented with visual disorder in his left eye and skin pain on his head as his initial symptoms. These symptoms were diagnosed to be caused by choroidal and cutaneous metastasis of gastric adenocarcinoma. Two cycles of chemotherapy consisted of oral S-1 and intravenous cisplatin (SPIRITS regimen); this was markedly effective to reduce the primary gastric lesion and almost all the metastatic lesions.
Primary Cutaneous Low Grade Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of Eyelid  [cached]

Abstract: Primary cutaneous mucinous adenocarcinoma is a rare adnexal neoplasm, eyelid being the most common site of presentation. Clinically it is mistaken for a benign / cystic lesion. Its morphologic similarity to metastatic deposits from breast, gastrointestinal tract (GIT) or any visceral sites adds to the diagnostic difficulty mandating the role of ancillary techniques in precise diagnosis and hence planning the management. We report a case of primary cutaneous mucinous adenocarcinoma of eyelid with emphasis on pathology along with a brief review of literature.

Abstract: Cutaneous metastasis from visceral malignancy is uncommon. We report a 54 year old female operated for adenocarcinoma caecum who developed multiple cutaneous metastatic nodules while on chemotherapy.

Abstract: Florid cutaneous papillomatosis (FCP), is a rare cutaneous marker of internal malignancy. The underlying cancer is usually intra-abdominal (most often gastric in origin), and evolves parallel to the FCP. There is a common association between FCP and the other two eruptive paraneoplastic syndromes, i.e.malignant acanthosis nigricans and the sign of Leser-Trelat. It seems possible that these syndromes develop via a common pathogenic pathway due to production of a factor similar to human epidermal growth factor by the underlying cancer. We report a case of FCP associated with malignant acanthosis nigricans, palmoplantar keratoderma and gastric adenocarcinoma.
