Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) metastasizes most commonly to the regional lymph nodes and lungs. Metastasis to heart, although described in literature, is a very rare phenomenon. We present the 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography–computed tomography findings in a 50-year-old woman who was a biopsy-proven case of SCC left foot, showing cardiac metastasis in addition to lymph nodes, lungs, and skeletal metastases.
