“…These lesions usually present as firm papules or nodules, both of which may ulcerate; occasionally they are inflammatory, sclerotic, bullous, or vesicular. Zosteriform metastasis is less well known; it may arise from adenocarcinoma of the lung, 2 3 carcinoma of the prostate, 4 5 Kaposi's sarcoma, 6 7 transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder,8 or malignant melanoma. 9 10 Zosteriform metastases are usually painful, tender, or pruritic and consist of vesicles on a background of erythema, imitating the appearance of shingles.…”

“…6 11 Our patient had no history of herpes zoster or any other skin lesion in this area. Perineural lymphatic spread of malignant cells has been suggested as a mechanism 2 4 5 12; invasion of the dorsal root ganglia with subsequent peripheral spread is another hypothesis. 3 8 12 Our case also highlights the value of histological examination in the management of skin lesions that do not respond to treatment.…”

“…In the case of the present report, histopathological lindings may represent a previous step of sclerodermoid metastases where there is a diffuse distribution of the neoplastic cells in a dermis without hair follicles. The cytology of the cutaneous metastases from cancer of the prostate is rather characteristic, with cells showing round nuclei and one or more conspicuous eosinophilic nucleoli [ 10,12,19]. Our cases showed these cytologic aspects.…”

“…Several of these nodular lesions were impetiginizcd, however when there was no response to antibiotic therapy a skin biopsy revealed metastatie prostate carcinoma. Bluefarb et al reported two patients who had red nodules in a dermatomal distribution [4]. Peison and Rahway reported metastatie prostate carcinoma of the scalp presenting as a large sebaceous-like cyst [5].…”

“…The frequent localization of cutaneous prostate metastases to the lower abdomen, groin and thighs favors the retrograde lymphatic or venous route of prostate carcinoma metastases [1]. Perineural metastatie dissemination may explain cases of zosteriform or dermatomal metastases [4,8].…”
