Cutaneous metastasis to the scalp from squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix

Abstract: Carcinoma of the cervix is a common neoplasm. Early detection and improved treatment techniques have resulted in better control of cancer and longer survival, however, invasive and metastatic disease still occur. Cervical cancer usually spreads through direct local extension and via the lymphatics, haematogenous metastasis is relatively infrequent and cutaneous metastases are very rare. Metastasis to the scalp is extremely rare and only three cases of scalp metastasis from cervical cancer have been reported in… Show more

“…The lesions may appear as multiple dermal and subcutaneous nodules on the chest, back, abdomen, lower extremity, axilla, neck and scalp. The nodules are usually firm, tender and non‐ulcerative 114,130,166 . Metastases from the endometrial carcinoma usually appear as multiple pruritic skin nodules on the lower abdomen, groin or the upper thigh.…”

“…In females, the most frequent sources of the skin metastases are carcinomas of breast (most common primary origin), colon, ovaries, and lungs as well as melanomas. Other studies include renal cell, uterine cervix [8, 9], and gastrointestinal cancer [1012]. The pattern of metastasis also depends on the age of the patient [6].…”

“…Cutaneous metastasis of cervical cancer is common at the abdominal wall, vulva, and anterior chest wall2; however, cases presenting at the scalp3,4, extremities5, umbilical surgical scar6,7, and drainage site8 have been reported. Only a few cases have been previously reported in Korean literature (Table 1)9-11.…”
