abstract

  • Carcinoma of the cervix is a common neoplasm, which annually affects 50,000 women in the United States. When cervical carcinoma metastasizes, it most often involves the lung, bone, and liver; only rarely does it metastasize to the skin. We describe a patient with previously diagnosed carcinoma of the cervix who presented with a lesion on the lateral aspect of her left leg.
