Abstract

Skin metastases, as the first site of manifestation of ovarian carcinoma, are very uncommon. A report on a case of dermal lymphatic carcinomatosis of the lower part of the body and the breast with the clinical appearance of scleroderma is made. Skin biopsies were performed several times and an invasion of cutaneous lymphatic vessels by carcinoma cells and psammoma bodies due to ovarian cancer was observed, which led to the correct diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma.
