A rare case of giant basal cell carcinoma – Therapeutic perspectives
Author: Mihaela Vidan Popa
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) greater than 30 cm in diameter is extremely rare, the treatment beeing often impracticable, the mortality raises directly proportional with the dimension of the tumor. We describe a peculiar case of a 71-year-old man with a GBCC of the all back area, which is surgically untreatable. Therapy with Vismodegib may be a curative option for Romanian patients with a personal financial support. Another Hedgehog pathway inhibitor was used “off-label” in our patient, the perspective of the treatment efficency beeing promising.
