Abstract

A retrospective analysis of 70 patients with metastatic cutaneous nodules, was conducted in the department of pathology, Kasturba Medical Gollege, Mangalore. The available clinical records and histologic material of these cases were reviewed. In last few years fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was being used as the main diagnostic tool. The commonest primary site of cutaneous metastasis in this study was gastro-intestinal tract (46.7%) in males and breast (32%) in females. Abdomen (including umbilical nodules) was found to be the most frequent site for metastatic cutaneous nodule.
