Clinical Image

An 83-year-old man presented with a voluminous exophytic lesion on forehead that had been quickly increasing in size during the past 3 months. The lesion had become progressively corneous, with intermittent bleeding.

The physical examination revealed a well-defined frontal horn measuring 5 × 3 cm in diameter (Figures 1-3). A Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC) was identified on biopsy. Unfortunately the patient had a heart attack and he was hospitalized in a cardiac care unit for a month. When the general conditions allowed a general anaesthesia the patient underwent a surgical debulking of the lesion but he died before starting oncological therapy from complications of cardiovascular disease. CSCC arises from the malignant proliferation of epidermal keratinocytes. It is the second most common cause of death from skin cancer after melanoma; its incidence continues to rise and is an underestimate [1-3].
