Cutaneous metastasis of carcinoma cervix is quite uncommon, with a reported incidence of 0.1%–4.4%, with zosteriform or dermatomal distribution being a rare presentation. Although zosteriform cutaneous metastases have been reported with other malignancies, namely lung carcinoma, breast carcinoma, and malignant melanoma, there are no reports of dermatomal cutaneous metastases with adenocarcinoma cervix. We report a case of adenocarcinoma cervix who developed cutaneous metastases in an unusual dermatomal distribution mimicking herpes zoster.
