Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) are neoplasms of mesenchymal origin which may or may not be malignant. Malignant GIST rarely metastasize to distal organs. A case of cutaneous metastasis from GIST has been presented. This case is particularly interesting because not only did the patient have multiple metastases from GIST, but eventually developed cutaneous metastasis. This phenomenon has not been reported in the literature. The most current literature on gastrointestinal stromal tumors has been reviewed.
