Abstract

The case of an 83-year-old woman with an uncommon presentation of cutaneous metastases from muscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder is reported. The band-like eruption of the metastatic lesion can often be misdiagnosed and treated initially as herpes zoster. A detailed immunohistochemical analysis is also described to differentiate metastatic lesions from other sources.
