Metastases from carcinomas of the skin are rare. During 1994-1996 six patients, 4 males and 2 females, aged from 52 to 94 years, were treated at the Department of Dermato-Venereology of the Semmelweis University of Medicine for metastasizing squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. After being operated for the primary tumors they developed metastase within 13 months. Presenting these cases, the authors discuss the main risk factors for metastasizing squamous cell carcinoma of the skin: the anatomical localization, thickness of the tumor, invasion of the subcutis, and the grade of dedifferentiation.
