Introduction: Gastric cancer in most cases is diagnosed in symptomatic patients with an advanced disease lacking a definite treatment. The common symptoms of the primary diagnosis include weight loss (0.62), stomachache (0.52), nausea (0.34), and swallowing disorder (dysphagia) (0.26). Methods: In this review article, the databases Medline, Cochrane, Science Direct, and Google Scholar were thoroughly searched to identify the Gastric cancer with cutaneous metastasis. In this review, the papers published until early January 2017 those were conducted to study the Gastric cancer with cutaneous metastasis were selected. Introducing the patient: The patient was a seventy-one-year-old woman diagnosed with gastric cancer the adenocarcinoma type. In the primary visit and the CT scan conducted on the patient's chest, abdomen, and pelvis, no distant metastasis was observed and the patient was in the non-metastatic phase of the disease. Discussion and conclusion: patients with advanced gastric cancer are likely to be in need of palliative therapy to relieve symptoms such as nausea, stomachache, obstruction, and bleeding. As for the presence of local symptoms such as cutaneous involvement, the local treatment was not effective and systemic treatments will be needed. Key words: Gastric cancer, cutaneous, metastasis
