Abstract

Soft tissue metastasis of visceral cancers are uncommon, as these cancers usually metastasize to surfaces near the primary tumor. Metastasis of signet ring cell carcinoma of stomach to soft tissue is a rare entity and we report a case which presented to us with swelling in the chest wall, the biopsy of which proved to be a metastasis from an unknown primary in the stomach, which was also biopsied and confirmed.
