Skin metastases secondary to vulvar carcinoma is an infrequent clinical entity. The authors describe a case of squamous vulvar carcinoma, which presented with cutaneous involvement as a part of distant spread. After a radical vulvectomy, bilateral inguino-femoral lymphadenectomy, and adjuvant radiotherapy, the patient developed multiple cutaneous metastases in lower extremities. This case was unique in presentation, with skin metastases secondary from vulvar carcinoma, and indicated advance disease and poor prognosis.
