Abstract

Metastatic basal cell carcinoma (MBCC) is very rare with incidences estimated to range from 0.0028% to 0.5% in the Caucasian population. The incidence of basal cell carcinoma is known to be much lower in Asian populations including Koreans. We present a rare case of metastatic BCC in a Korean woman who showed lymph node, lung and bone metastasis, with a review of the MBCC cases reported in the Korean literature.
