Merkel cell carcinoma is a rare small cell carcinoma of the dermis with aggressive clinical features and frequent local recurrence. Intra‐abdominal spread of the cancer has previously been noted primarily in the liver and retroperitoneal nodes. We report a patient with previously diagnosed Merkel cell carcinoma of the right buttock with metastases to the stomach and duodenum presenting with acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding.
