Cutaneous metastasis from lung cancer is rare. We report two female patients, aged 30 and 55 years, respectively, in whom skin metastasis from lung cancer were accompanied by multinodular goiter. Histopathologic diagnoses were small cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma, respectively. In one patient, skin lesions were the first manifestations of cancer, while in the other, cutaneous lesions appeared during the preparation period for operation. Both patients had multinodular goiter. Fine-needle aspiration revealed no evidence for malignancy in the thyroid glands. Our literature search showed no report of lung cancer with skin metastases coexisting with multinodular goiter.
