Introduction: Metastatic carcinoma in abdominal wall, incisional skin, skin from internal malignant neoplasm is uncommon and often preterminal event. Most commonly metastatic skin incisional cancers have been reported with cancer of colon, kidney, and bladder. Clinical case: A fifty-year-old female with squamous cell carcinoma cervix treated with surgery, radiotherapy and after two years of completion radical treatment developed infected tumor that involved skin and subcutaneous tissue treated with surgery and palliative chemotherapy. Discussion: The outcome of patients with this type of metastasis is usually poor as they are often associated with locoregional recurrence. The intent of treatment remains palliation either by radiation/chemotherapy/surgery alone or in combinations. As far as we know this is the first case reported in Mexico. Source
