Abstract

Metastatic skin cancer is a rare complication of internal malignancies.  Patients who develop cutaneous metastases rarely present with a zosteriform distribution.  Herein, we describe a 65-year-old woman with a prior history of breast cancer in whom zosteriform metastases developed along her left T8-9 abdominal dermatomes.
