Abstract

Cutaneous metastases from primary genitourinary malignancies are rare and usually represent a poor prognostic sign. Very few cases of skin metastases from urothelial carcinoma have been reported in the past, and most of them were treated with chemotherapy. We report a patient with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder who developed skin metastases after cystectomy. The lesions did not respond to systemic chemotherapy but resolved with local radiation therapy. We discuss the need to have a high index of suspicion to identify these lesions and the treatment approaches.
