Abstract
Genital lymphedema may be a presenting feature of cutaneous metastasis of gastric carcinoma. This underscores the importance of evaluation in persistent genital swelling and erythema. We report a case of cutaneous metastasis from gastric carcinoma by lymphatic spreading. A 30-year-old female presented faintly erythematous swelling with pruritus and prickling sensation on labia majora for 1 month. Five years ago, she had diagnosed as gastric carcinoma, and gastrectomy was done. Also, she had received oophorectomy due to matastatic gastric carcinoma, Krukenberg tumor. Histopathologic finding showed glandular structures composed of hyperchromatic cells and signet ring cells within dilated lymphatic vessels in edematous dermis, which were consistent with lymphatic metastasis from gastric carcinoma.
