A RARE CASE OF BASAL CELL CARCINOMA WITH PAROTID INVASION: A CASE REPORT

G. Uthirakumar, Hemilda Periyanayaki

Abstract


Despite the known features of aggressive BCC, invasion of deeper structures as parotid gland, temporal bone and facial nerve are rarely reported and the management of such tumors is always challenging. In the absence of Moh’s micrographic surgery, frozen section assumes ultimate importance. Moreover contemplating with rarely used flaps as mastoid fascial flap,which is not very well described in literature, can be of much help occasionally.
