Abstract

This article describes a 73-year-old white man with a history of dizziness secondary to profound anemia who presented with a large basal cell carcinoma of the left front temple region. A multidisciplinary approach to the extirpation and reconstruction of this defect is presented with a review of histopathologic features and outcomes of basal cell carcinoma excision.
