Cutaneous metastasis from a primary internal malignancy is rare. Breast cancer is the most common primary internal malignancy presenting with cutaneous metastases, and it presents in various morphological and histological forms. Medical practitioners should be aware of the possibility of the unusual presentation of an internal malignancy mimicking a dermatological condition. Herein, we report a case of 50-year-old women with ductal carcinoma of the breast with a cutaneous manifestation of secondary metastatic deposits in the skin.
