Primary cutaneous adnexal neoplasms are mostly benign in nature; however, there have been reports of malignant adnexal tumors with distant metastasis to lymph nodes. Adnexal cutaneous malignancy with metastasis to the gastrointestinal tract has never been  reported. Here, we present a rare case of a man with primary adnexal cutaneous adenocarcinoma who presented with symptomatic anemia secondary to occult  gastrointestinal bleeding, found to be from gastrointestinal metastasis of the adnexal malignancy.Keywords Primary cutaneous adnexal neoplasms, gastrointestinal malignancy, skin tumorAnn Gastroenterol 2017; 30 (5): 581-582 (EN)
