Abstract

Cancer of the vulva, the fourth most common malignancy of the female genital tract, accounts for approximately 4% of all gynecologic malignancies. Only one prior case of a cutaneous metastasis from a vulvar cancer has been previously reported and involved a FIGO Stage III (T2N1M0) lesion. We report a patient with Stage II (T2N0M0) vulvar carcinoma who developed cutaneous metastases. This case demonstrates the ability of vulvar carcinoma to disseminate hematogenously, despite complete surgical resection with negative skin margins, and negative lymph nodes. In addition, this case emphasizes the importance of careful and close follow-up of all patients with vulvar carcinoma.
