Skin metastasis from nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a rare clinical finding. The most common form of appearance is a few solitary skin nodules. However, massive and extensive nodular dissemination or diffuse dermal lymphatic infiltration is extremely rare. We here present a case of a 40-year-old man with widespread nodular skin metastases from undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
