Surgical Excision with Rotational Flap Reconstruction for Basosquamous Cell Carcinoma in Xeroderma Pigmentosa: A Case Report
- 37 Downloads
Xeroderma pigmentosa (XP) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder which is characterized by a defect in nucleotide excision repair of DNA following exposure to UV radiation. This leads to hypersensitivity to sunlight causing pigmented skin lesions, photophobia and a 1000-fold increase in risk of developing cutaneous malignancies like basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and melanomas of head and neck. We present an interesting case of a 28 year old man with basosquamous cell carcinoma secondary to XP treated successfully with surgical excision and reconstruction with rotational flap technique.
