Abstract

Cutaneous metastases from Transitional Cell Carcinoma Urinary Bladder is very rare and associated with poor prognosis. In this case report a 75 year old male came with multiple subcutaneous metastases arising from Transitional Cell Carcinoma of Urinary Bladder. 2 years back the patient underwent Partial Cystectomy for the Transitional Cell Carcinoma Urinary Bladder, 6 months later he presented with 3 subcutaneous nodules arising from scalp, lumbar and epigastric region. FNAC was performed from all the nodules which showed cytogical features of Urothelial Carcinoma. As this presentation was an unsual one awareness into this is needed in order to rule out metastases in patients with any previous history of Transitional Cell Carcinoma in patient who present with cutaneous lesions.
