Abstract

A number of cutaneous disorders have been associated with underlying malignancies. This article reviews the clinical and histologic features of paraneoplastic disorders with cutaneous findings, discusses their associations with neoplastic and other related conditions, and recommends appropriate evaluation in this setting. A heightened awareness of these conditions may facilitate the diagnosis of malignancy.
