Cutaneous metastases from gastric adenocarcinoma 15 years after curative gastrectomy

Abstract: We report the case of a 38-year-old man, who developed cutaneous metastases in the left inguinal groove 15 years after curative gastrectomy for advanced gastric adenocarcinoma. Histopathologic examination revealed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma cells. They were stained positive for villin, CDX-2, CKpan (AE1/ AE3), CEA, CK8/18, CK19, CK7, EMA, Ki-67 (50%), and negative for S-100, CK20, CD34, GCDFP-15 and TTF-1. The patient underwent local excision, after the presence of other metastases was excluded. Neve… Show more

“…Metastasisfrom gastric adenocarcinoma usually develop on the abdominal wall as skin nodules or Sister Mary Joseph's nodules around the umbilicus (Figure 3). 4,5 However, in this case, the skin metastasis did not manifest as nodules but as skin papules, which initially appeared as dermatitis in general. Thus, the patient was prescribed with dermal cream treatment.…”

“…The most common site of skin metastasis is the abdominal wall where it is known as Sister Mary Joseph nodule, with less reported sites being scalp, eyelids, fingertips, neck and trunk. 4 They usually present as erythematous or violaceous lesions which are most commonly painless nodules. 4 Less reported types are erysipelas or cellulitis like lesions, lesions with zosteriform pattern, scarred lesions, plaques, epidermoid cyst, wart-like lesions and even non-specific dermatitis.…”
