ABSTRACT
Carcinomas of the pancreas represent less than 5% of human malignant neoplasms [5], skin involvement is rare, and metastasis generally occurs at the umbilical area. There are few reported cases with cutaneous lesions disclosing a pancreatic carcinoma at sites other than the umbilical area. We report a case of cutaneous metastases of pancreatic carcinoma to the scalp. The literature on pancreatic cutaneous metastasis is reviewed and discussed.
