Text of Clinical Images

Basal cell carcinomas are one of the most common cutaneous malignant tumors of the skin. These neoplasms may progressively enlarge and invade adjacent structures. The images belong to a 65-years-old male patient with an extensive tumor of the scalp, which grew slowly for eleven years. The biopsy reported an adenoid basal cell carcinoma. The CT scan revealed an extensive tumor, which destroyed the right orbit and maxillary sinus and part of the skull, invaded the meninges and the right parietal and frontal lobes of the brain. The tumor was considered unresectable and the patient was treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
