Carcinoma of esophagus is one of the cancers with a high mortality rate. Metastasis with esophageal carcinoma in lymph nodes, lung, liver, bones, and adrenal glands is a common pattern. Nowadays, uncommon sites of metastasis are increasingly reported including skin. Cutaneous metastasis in squamous cell carcinoma is more common than in adenocarcinoma. Here, we present three cases of cutaneous metastasis in patients with carcinoma of esophagus, out of which two cases were seen with squamous cell carcinoma and one was with adenocarcinoma. The prognosis in such patients is dismal and they are treated with palliative chemotherapy.
