Abstract

Lung carcinoma is the most common type of carcinoma seen in males and 4 most common in females. Skin metastasis from lung carcinoma is frequent with an incidence of 1%-12%, with most common site being the anterior chest wall. Skin metastasis from lung carcinoma to the tip of nose is very rare with only 12 cases being reported in literature(Table 1). It can be confused with other benign and malignant conditions, such as infection, lymphoma, hemangioma, rhinophyma, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis and carcinomas, making its diagnosis difficult. Less than 20 cases of cutaneous nasal tip metastasis are reported in literature out of which 12 are from malignancies of lung. Sometimes it can appear earlier than the primary lesion and thus delays the diagnosis of primary lesion. = In this case report, we report a case of nasal tip cutaneous metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of lung.
