Neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin is generally considered
as Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC). Here we present
two cases of cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinomas of
which one presents clinically and histopathologically
as a typical MCC and the other does not. Based on our
findings we hypothesize that cutaneous neuroendocrine
carcinomas can be divided in two main groups, i.e. the
classic MCC CK20 + and a more low-grade neuroendocrine
carcinoma CK20-/CK7+.
