We present a case of cutaneous metastases from a primary bladder transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), with a prolonged survival of 23 years. Cutaneous metastases from primary bladder TCC are uncommon and, like all metastases, have a poor prognosis. The common modality of treatment of cutaneous metastases from a primary bladder cancer is wide local excision of the metastases followed by combination chemotherapy. Here, we present a case of a solitary cutaneous metastasis from a primary bladder TCC, which was treated with wide local excision and single agent chemotherapy. Twenty-three years on, the patient remains disease and recurrence free.
