The available clinical records and histologic material of these cases were reviewed. In last few years fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was being used as the main diagnostic tool. The commonest primary site of cutaneous metastasis in this study was gastro-intestinal tract (46.7%) in males and breast (32%) in females.
