Cervical carcinoma is the second most common malignancy among Indian women. It spreads mainly through the regional lymphatics to nodes in the pelvic and para-aortic regions. If distant metastasis occurs, it is typically in the lung, bone, and liver. Melanoma, renal, lung, thyroid, lymphoma, and leukemia malignancies frequently metastasize to muscles. Subcutaneous and intramuscular metastasis from carcinoma of the cervix is a rare manifestation. The reported incidence for subcutaneous metastasis ranges from 0.1% to 2%, and only 19 cases of intramuscular deposits have been reported. Here, we discuss the occurrence of subcutaneous and intramuscular metastatic lesions in a patient with carcinoma of the cervix.
