Cutaneous metastases of the hepatocellular carcinoma are very rare. The metastases are usually manifested on the face, scalp, chest, and abdomen. Skin metastasis is symptom of progressive disease and usually a sign of poor prognosis. It can be the first sign of the disease. The entire skin should be carefully inspected whenever, malignant disease is suspected. We report a case of skin metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma for its rarity.
