Ozan Beytemur, Cem Albay, Oktay Adanir, Asuman Chiomet Amet, Mehmet Akif Gulec.


Pancreatic cancer is usually high-grade and metastatic when diagnosed. Skin metastasis is very rare and is usually found in the periumbilical area. Non-umbilical metastasis is extremely rare. Only 19 cases have been reported in the literature. Only one case in the buttock has been described: thus our case is the second one known.
In this note, we present a cutaneous metastasis of a pancreatic cancer case that was admitted to the clinic with a mass each on the left buttock and in the left axilla, surgically treated for palliation. We include a review of the literature.

Key words: Axilla, buttocks, cutaenous metastasis, pancreatic carcinoma
