Cutaneous metastasis may be the first evidence of internal malignancy or a sign of recurrence of malignancy and is considered a grave prognostic sign. There are various morphological variants of cutaneous metastases, with the most common being solitary to multiple erythematous infiltrating papules and nodules and the rarer variants being carcinoma erysipeloides, carcinoma en cuirasse, carcinoma telangiectaticum, alopecia neoplastica, metastasis to the inframammary crease, and zosteriform pattern. FDG PETCT is an established imaging modality in the identification of an unknown primary malignancy and also has an important role in the therapeutic decision-making.
