PubMed RSS Feed - -Nasal Tip Cutaneous Metastasis of Hepatocellular Carcinoma: A Case Report


Recommended Posts

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol. 2023 Oct 17;16:2893-2897. doi: 10.2147/CCID.S429480. eCollection 2023.


BACKGROUND: Cutaneous metastasis is rare in clinical practice, especially that from primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which is even rarer.

CASE PRESENTATION: This report describes a male patient with HCC with cutaneous metastases to the nasal tip. The patient developed a raised nodule at the nasal tip 5 years after surgery for HCC, with surface ulceration and crusting and no obvious symptoms. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed an obvious mass in the liver. The skin lesions on the nasal tip were confirmed to be cutaneous metastasis of HCC by histopathological and immunohistochemical examinations.

CONCLUSION: The incidence of cutaneous metastasis of HCC is extremely low, and nasal tip cutaneous metastasis of HCC has no specific clinical manifestations; therefore, it needs to be distinguished from rosacea rhinophyma, fungal and atypical mycobacterial infections, tumours of vascular origin, and tumours of skin appendages that occur in the nasal tip and is prone to misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis, thus requiring clinical dermatologists and otolaryngologists to be aware of such metastasis.
