Abstract

Cutaneous metastases in colorectal cancer are rare, occurring in less than 6% of cases. They usually present after diagnosis of a primary tumour and are typically associated with disseminated disease and a poor prognosis. We present an unusual case of a 71-year-old female in whom cutaneous metastases were the initial feature of an underlying colorectal cancer.
