Salivary duct carcinoma is a rare and highly aggressive malignant tumour that frequently metastasizes, however, its cutaneous metastases are extraordinarily rare. To the best of our knowledge, there are only 7 cases reported in the literature, but none of them concerned dermoscopic presentation. We present clinical, dermoscopic and histopathological features of cutaneous metastases from salivary duct carcinoma of the parotid gland in a 60-year-old patient.
