Abstract

An 80-year-old woman was seen in the dermatology clinic because of painful ulcerated lesions of the scalp. Basal-cell carcinomas had first developed on her back at 34 years of age and had spread to involve much of her body, particularly the scalp. Multiple excisions and grafts had been performed, but lesions recurred.
