In contrast to benign tumors, malignant tumors, by definition, are characterized by the potential of giving rise to metastases. Albeit infrequently, skin metastases do occur, and their clinical appearance varies over a wide morphologic spectrum. We present the case of a 65-year-old male with zosteriform metastasis secondary to bronchogenic adenocarcinoma. A review of cutaneous metastasis is presented with emphasis on dermatomal distribution and possible mechanisms of dissemination.
