Abstract´╝Ü IntroductionThe reported incidence of cutaneousmetastasis from internal carcinoma ranges from 0.7% to 10%, with wide variability across different studies. Although cervical carcinoma is a very common malignant tumor in women, the frequency of cutaneous metastasis from cervical carcinoma is less than 2%.1 Usually, metastasis occurs at a site adjacent to the primary carcinoma, and the most common clinical presentation of the metastasis is a nodule. Cervical carcinomas almost always metastasize to the abdomen wall, vulva, or anterior chestwall. To the best of our knowledge, reports of a facial cellulitis-like metastasis of cervical carcinoma are relatively rare in the published literature. Herein, we report the case of aChinesewoman, whohad a twoyearshistory of cervical carcinoma and a developed facial metastasis presenting as a cellulitis-like lesion.
