Malignant acanthosis nigricans is recognized as a cutaneous sign of internal malignancy, usually an adenocarcinoma. Although cases of malignant acanthosis nigricans have been associated with cervical, ovarian, and endometrial neoplasms, we describe a case with a rarely if ever reported association, endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the parametrium.
