Cutaneous metastasis from lung carcinoma is rare and has ominous prognosis. Due to the absence of any pathognomonic appearance, it is usually misdiagnosed as benign skin lesion. Clinically, lung carcinoma may present first time with cutaneous lesions alone whilst the primary lesion in lung remains quiescent. We present the case of 62-year-old male who presented with cutaneous nodules and on further investigations they turned out be cutaneous metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of lung.
