Abstract

Cutaneous metastases are very rare events and are related to a distant tumor invasion. Prostate metastases have a 1% appearance rate; the most common locations include the genital or suprapubic region and are very rarely located at a distance. We report the case of a male patient with cutaneous metastasis of prostate adenocarcinoma located in the cervical and upper thoracic area. The patient also had a history of pulmonary tuberculosis. A CT scan revealed the presence of bone metastasis, pleural effusion, and infiltration of the soft tissues of the neck. The histopathological study confirmed the presence of cutaneous metastasis of primary prostate neoplasia. We present this case due to its unusualness and its importance in the differential diagnosis of this pathology.
