Authors Rashmi Advani, Manhal Izzy, Ashwin Akki, Calley Levine, Nicole Panarelli, Lawrence J. Brandt.


Primary cutaneous adnexal neoplasms are mostly benign in nature; however, there have been reports of malignant adnexal tumors with distant metastasis to lymph nodes. Adnexal cutaneous malignancy with metastasis to the gastrointestinal tract has never been  reported. Here, we present a rare case of a man with primary adnexal cutaneous adenocarcinoma who presented with symptomatic anemia secondary to occult  gastrointestinal bleeding, found to be from gastrointestinal metastasis of the adnexal malignancy.
