Skin Nodules as a First Presentation of Metastatic Invasive Lobular Carcinoma: Case Presentation
Abstract: Primary breast carcinoma is the most common cause of cutaneous metastases in adult females, comprising about one fourth of patients with the disease. Although CM usually manifests as a late event in the course of a known neoplasm, they are rarely the presenting sign of an undiagnosed malignancy. Invasive Lobular carcinoma is known to be more likely to spread to unusual sites.
