PEREZ DE LA FUENTE, T.  e  GONZALEZ GONZALEZ, I.. Basal cell carcinoma metastatic to the parotid area: case report. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2006, vol.32, n.1, pp.63-67. ISSN 1989-2055.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common cutaneous malignancy. As the scamous cell carcinoma its first location is in head and neck, but the rate of regional metastases is much lower. We present the case of an 85-year-old woman with a basal cell carcinoma located on the ear. She was first treated by local excision and direct suture. Two years later presented a local recurrence in the lower part of the ear. At this time a physical neck exam revealed a submandibular node. Fine needle aspiration was positive for basal cell carcinoma metastases, and a Computed Tomography (CT) showed a single mass in the submandibular region not in contact with bone. Treatment consisted on a wide local excision, superficial parotidectomy and ipsilateral functional neck dissection. The patient refused postoperative radiotherapy treatment. At this moment the woman is alive and under periodical revision.
