Cutaneous metastasis is one of the many skin changes which are associated with internal malignancies. Breast, lung, and colon are the most common sources of internal primary malignancies. Gastro-esophageal junction adenocarcinoma is a rare cause of cutaneous metastasis to the scalp. Gastric adenocarcinoma usually metastasizes to the liver, peritoneal cavity and regional lymph nodes more often than to skin. We are presenting a case of cutaneous metastasis on the scalp of a 79-year-old man, who was diagnosed and operated for gastro-oesophageal junction adenocarcinoma one year back.
