A 55-year-old male presented with asymptomatic, 1 to 3 cm, erythematous nodules on the scalp and beard for a month [Figure 1]a. Our differential diagnoses included lymphoma, pseudolymphoma and cutaneous metastasis. Histopathological examination showed a poorly differentiated metastatic tumor. Immunohistochemical stains were positive for synaptophysin, chromogranin a, cytokeratin 7 and vimentin indicating a metastatic large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma. Chest radiography showed a round opacity in the middle zone of the right lung representing the primary tumour [Figure 1]b. Chemotherapy with cisplatin was initiated but he died 4 months later.{Figure 1}
