Cutaneous Paraneoplastic Granulomatous Eruptions Secondary to Metastatic Carcinoid Tumour.

Abstract
Cutaneous granulomatous eruptions comprise a rare subset of paraneoplastic dermatitides most commonly associated with haematologic malignancies. The pathogenesis of these eruptions remains poorly understood. Carcinoid tumours are uncommon neuroendocrine neoplasms that most often arise in the gastrointestinal tract and produce excess serotonin leading to diarrhoea and flushing. Metastases can result in elevated systemic neuroendocrine mediator levels causing carcinoid syndrome, with cutaneous manifestations including flushing, rosacea, pellagra, and rarely sclerodermatous changes (1).
