Metastatic ductal carcinoma of the parotid gland in a patient with sarcoidosis

Arch Dermatol. 1979 Sep;115(9):1098-9.


A 38-year-old man with a history of sarcoidosis and ductal carcinoma of the parotid had metastasis to the pleura and skin. This skin metastasis resembled carcinoma of the breast. There is a possibility of sarcoidosis with its depressed cellular immunity predisposing to malignancy.
