Common metastaic sites of hepatocellular carcinoma include lung, peritoneum, adrenal gland and bone, but rarely, skin can be metastatic sites. Although hepatocellular carcinoma is the third commonest malignancy in Korea, cutaneous metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma was rarely reported. Cutaneous metastasis from malignant neoplasm of the internal organ occur at the variable stage and the growth pattern of cutaneous lesions is nonspecific and various, so the differential diagnosis of skin lesions must be considered to other malignant condition. We report a case of cutaneous metastasis from recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma that was confirmed by skin biopsy with immunohistochemical stain. (Korean J Hepatol 2007;13:234-238)
