MARCOS SANCHEZ, F. et al. A new case of Merkel’s cell carcinoma. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.5, pp.49-52. ISSN 0378-4835.

A case of an 80 years old woman subjected to removal of a huge tumor located in the right axillar region is presented. A histological diagnosis of primary skin neuroendocrine carcinoma (Merkel's cell carcinoma) was made. The extension study showed a sigma villous adenoma with severe displasia. After surgery, radiation therapy was done. Some clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects on this rare neoplasia are made.

Keywords : Neuroendocrine carcinoma; Merkel's cell carcinoma.
