Abstract: Cutaneous metastasis from internal malignancies is a rare clinical presentation and pose difficulty in diagnosis. It is uncommon and can occur due to a known malignancy or due to occult primary or in conjunction with the primary tumor. Though clinical examination aids in the diagnosis, FNAC is the first line diagnostic procedure. FNAC is an inexpensive, simple and fast diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of cutaneous metastasis. We hereby analysed about 15 cytology cases retrospectively and prospectively with the aid of clinical presentation and various diagnostic modalities to record the incidence of cutaneous metastases of internal organs in the Department of Pathology, Stanley Medical College. Primary cutaneous lesions were excluded from the study.
