Bladder cancer is one of the most common malignancies of the urinary tract. Cutaneous metastasis of bladder carcinoma is extremely rare with a limited number of cases, resulting mainly from iatrogenic seeding. Here, we present scan findings of cutaneous metastasis in a known case of carcinoma urinary bladder. The 18F FDG PET/CT scan revealed FDG avid nodular thickening of the skin and sub-cutaneous tissue with ulcerations involving anterior pelvic wall, walls of the scrotum and the base of the penis. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of cutaneous and subcutaneous metastasis.
